“Don’t worry about anything.  Instead pray about everything.  Tell God what you need and thank Him for all He has done.”  Philippians 4:6-7
Have you ever had one of those days when just nothing goes right?  It seemed like every single thing in your life that day just goes wrong and you think - “I’m just going back to bed!” 
When we do, when we feel overwhelmed, when we’re stressed out, when we’re at the end of the rope, then we’ve got two alternatives.  Worry or worship.  We’re going to do one or the other. 
The antidote to panic is prayer and praise.  God’s antidote to worry and anxiety is worship.
Worship which …
asks for God’s help,
believes in God’s purposeful presence,
confesses our inadequacy,
depends on God,
gives thanks to God, and
finds God blessing our circumstances.
