Prayer, the cure for care…

“I suppose it is true for many of us that our cares are manifold. If you are like me, once you become careful, anxious, fretful, you are never able to count your cares, even though you might count the hairs of your head.  Cares multiply to those who are care-full. When you are as full of care as you think you can be, you will be sure to find another crop of cares growing up all around you.  The indulgence of this habit of anxiety leads to its getting dominion over life till life is not worth living by reason of the care we have about it.  Cares and worries are manifold; therefore let your prayers be manifold. Turn everything that is a care into a prayer. Let your cares be the raw material of your prayers. As the alchemist hoped to turn dross into gold, you have the power to actually turn what naturally would have been a care into a spiritual treasure in the form of prayer.  Baptize every anxiety into the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, and so make it into a blessing”- Charles Spurgeon.
