The Lord is near

These verses are often quoted to encourage prayer: “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:6-7).”

The preceding verse shows why our prayer is powerful:“The Lord is at hand (Philippians 4:5).”

Because the Lord is near, He hears our cries and brings us peace.
