Prayer Topic: Unknown

When our circumstances start turning in the wrong direction, we are confronted with the truth that we actually have very little control and facing the unknown often causes us to worry. Someone who is facing the unknown is most likely experiencing feelings of fear and anxiety. Remind them that God cares about them and that He is trustworthy to be in control. Over and over he reminds us that He is in control, that He is good, and that all we need to do is trust in Him.


Possible Things to Pray for:

  • Give up desire to control.
  • Identify and eliminate any areas where you are not trusting God.
  • Guarded mind against feelings of worry.
  • Authority that comes from the Holy Spirit over thoughts, words and deeds.


Verses to Share:


Philippians 4:6-7 NIV - Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.


Joshua 1:9 NIV - Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.


Matthew 6:25-34 NIV - Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
