Christian Ways to Reduce Stress

"If God is for us, who can be against us?"
 (Romans 8:31)

  1. Pray.

  2. Go to bed on time.

  3. Get up on time so you can start the day unrushed.

  4. Say No to projects that won't fit into your time schedule,
      or that will compromise your mental health.

  5. Delegate tasks to capable others.

  6. Simplify and un-clutter your life.

  7. Less is more. (Although one is often not enough, two are often too many.)

  8. Allow extra time to do things and to get to places.

  9. Pace yourself. Spread out big changes and difficult projects over time;
      don't lump the hard things all together.

 10. Take one day at a time.

 11. Separate worries from concerns. If a situation is a concern,
      find out what God would have you to do and let go of the anxiety.
      If you can't do anything about a situation, forget it.

 12. Live within your budget; don't use credit cards for ordinary purchases.

 13. Have backups; an extra car key in your wallet,
      an extra house key buried in the garden, extra stamps, etc.,

 14. K.M.S. (Keep Mouth Shut). This single piece of advice can
       prevent an enormous amount of  trouble

 15. Do something for the Kid in You everyday.

 16. Carry a Bible with you to read while waiting in line.

 17. Get enough exercise.

 18. Eat right.

19. Get organized so everything has its place.

 20. Listen to a tape while driving that can help improve your quality of life.

 21. Write thoughts and inspirations down.

 22. Every day, find time to be alone.

 23. Having problems? Talk to God on the spot. Try to nip small problems
       in the bud.  Don't wait until it's time to go to bed to try and pray.

 24. Make friends with Godly people.

 25. Keep a folder of your favorite scriptures on hand.

 26. Remember that the shortest bridge between despair and hope is
      often a good "Thank you, Jesus!"

 27. Laugh.

 28. Laugh some more!

 29. Take your work seriously, but yourself, not at all.

 30. Develop a forgiving attitude (most people are doing the best they can).

 31. Be kind to unkind people (they probably need it the most).

Sit on your ego.

 33. Talk less; listen more.

 34. Slow down.

 35. Remind yourself that you are not the general manager of the universe.

 36. Every night before bed, think of one thing you're grateful for,
      that you've never been grateful for before.


A Prayer For Your Nation

Precious Lord Jesus, Wonderful God, Empowering Holy Spirit,
Hear our plea, O Lord.
In honesty and truth, we have sinned and continue to sin as a nation.
Except for a tiny remnant, we, as your people, have turned from you.
Forgive us, Lord.
Forgive us and protect us.
Your wrath will most surely be poured out upon us as a nation for we have fallen do deeply into sin and degradation.
Please, Lord, protect those who cannot know you because of circumstances and who cannot protect themselves.
Please do not let the truly innocent suffer.
Please do not let those who do not fully understand you suffer your wrath for they do not know what to do or what to think.
There are so many simple and innocent men, women, and children.
Please let these people be spared. Bring forth your mercy for the little ones so fragile and so tender.
We have all sinned. We have all gone astray. If it is your will, bring all of us, as a nation, to our knees in prayer and humility.
Revive us and bring us to you in humility and thanksgiving.
The hour is late and the clock ticks on as we approach these final minutes.
Take your hand and touch the blind, the sick, the crippled, the homeless, and those who do not know how much you love them.
We make these pleas with hurt in our heart.
We make these pleas with a sense of foreboding about what is to happen to so many.
In your love, let not the terror of the evil one strike us, but touch our hearts and show us your love, even when we do not deserve to see you again.
All these things I pray in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
