Prayer (Philippians 4)

All around me I see things that need be prayed for
a friend is ill, another looking for work, 
yet another we pray they seek You,
and so my prayer time became a shopping list
and my heart feels that prayer is so much more

Yet your servant Paul wrote to us
to remember You are near
You are with us
and in light of that amazing truth
to bring our requests
with thanksgiving
to the One who knows all 
and is ultimately in Control

We need to consider our heart,
our motive, when we bring again our needs 
Do we believe You are near us, and in control
and leave our requests at your feet?
or do we continue to fret
and not accept Your peace
Your peace that surpasses all our understanding
