Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
This is easier said then not. When many pray to God it is out of need and or desperation. Prayer nor talking to God has to be a need type thing. A casual thank you Lord works. A word to renounce a sin admitting that you were wrong and that you are sorry is okay. Knowing that you will try your best to live up to Gods word is fine. There are plenty a promise that God has made mankind. It is up to us to do our best to live up to his expectations. The saving grace is That through Jesus all things are possible. God knows us.
