Money worries eat at your spirit and dry up your prayer life. This kind of worry creates a barrier between you and God and leaves you feeling alone and lost. But as you think of the words of Hebrews 13:5, remember that God is always there, always ready to take your hand and pull you up out of the mire of worry.
—Patricia Wilson, Freedom from Worry: 28 Days of Prayer (Upper Room Books, 2013)

—Hebrews 13:5 (CEB)
