Pray, and Let God Worry – Working Preacher from Luther Seminary
“Pray, and let God worry,” I read on the internet. Worrying consumes a lot of time and energy, making prayer difficult to fit into a busy fretter’s schedule. Worry also gives you the false sense that you’re in control. God is the ultimate worrier, and God is good at it. Consider how God fusses over the Israelites and their Egyptian situation.
Who said Pray and let God worry?
