Sermon Title: Hope For The Worried Heart

Scripture: Philippians 4:6–7

  

This week, Pastor David continued the sermon series from Philippians with encouragement from Philippians 4.

 

1.          The Root Of Our Worry: Trust

2.          The Antidote To Our Worry: Prayer

3.          The Fruit Of Our Prayer: Peace 

 

Going Deeper:

 

  • Worry is always connected to trust. What cares and concerns are strangling you right now? How do Jesus’ words in Matthew 6:25, 30, and 34 comfort you and call you to deeper trust in Him?
  • Pastor David shared that prayer is the primary cure for worry. How is prayer similar to weeding a garden? What weeds do you have that need to be submitted to God as you pray?
  • While prayer doesn’t always change the circumstances, faithful prayer always changes us. What do you need to change in your schedule this week to allow more time for you to pray?
  • When have you experienced peace, even in the midst of uncertainty or difficult circumstances? How are you encouraged by this peace that only comes from God?
