Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.…Philippians 4:6-7
Bulstrode Whitelocke, Cromwell's envoy to Sweden, was one night so disturbed in mind over the state of his nation that he could not sleep. His servant observing it said, "Pray, sir, will you give me leave to ask you a question?"
"Do you think that God governed the world very well before you came into it?"
"Then, pray, sir, excuse me, do you not think that you may trust Him to govern it as long as you live?" No answer could be given, and composure and sleep followed.
