Why pray if you worry? Why worry if you pray?

Life goes on......This is a new year and will bring "a fresh new life", new hope and a strengthened new trust and faith unto Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us.... as a prisoner for the Lord, we shall live a life worthy of the calling we have received. We are not in charge. We are powerless over our situation and over others who choose not to come into the light. We are to remain humble, gentle and patient, bearing with one another in love. We will make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. We will continue to love and pray for those in our world who have chosen the darkness over the light. There are those who are darkened in their understanding and separated from God's truth because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardening of their hearts.... We are all commanded the same teaching and that is to put off all falsehood and speak truthfully.
Listen to this song:
We will carefully choose to speak (not unwholesome talk) only what is good and helpful to the building up of those we love according to their needs. We choose to be kind and compassionate to one another and forgiving toward those who have wronged us. We choose love and will turn our back on any form of anger, bitterness, rage, brawling or slander of any kind. There are days in life where it is appropriate to "detach with love". We have always chosen to have no part in the evil deeds of darkness but rather will expose them. We will have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness but will always welcome loving relationships built upon the foundation of love and truth and honesty. This may just be the Year of our Lord. Jesus is coming! We will watch and keep an eye on Israel and what is happening there! We will be careful how we live and shall make the most of every opportunity giving thanks unto God for everything because this is what He commands for us. We will be ready to face the Lord with what we have done and with what we have been given! God's peace be unto you. We'll strive to be at peace with all men as much as it is in our power to do so. May it indeed, be a Happy New Year for all.

I am concerned for the ones who have falsely accused an innocent man who now sits unjustly in prison with a sentence that will last the rest of his life.
In Psalm 7 I read:
Behold, the wicked brings forth iniquity;
Yes, (she) conceives trouble and brings forth falsehood.
(She) has made a pit and fallen into the ditch which (she) has made.
(Her) trouble shall return upon (her) own head,
And (her) violent dealing shall come down on (her) own crown.
Meanwhile in prison the innocent man...awaiting for truth to be told and justice to come forth...can only say,
“Help me, O LORD my God!
Oh, save me according to Your mercy,
That they may know that this is Your hand–
That You, LORD, have done it! (helped me)
Let them curse, but You bless;
When they arise, let them be ashamed,
But let Your servant rejoice.
Let my accusers be clothed with shame,
And let them cover themselves with their own disgrace as with a mantle.” (Psalm 109)
If the accusers do not have remorse for what they have done, nor have the courage to make right the terrible wrong they have perpetrated, here is what God’s Word has to say about what they have done to this innocent man:
“As (she) loved cursing, so let it come to (her);
As (she) did not delight in blessing, so let it be far from (her).
As (she) clothed (herself) with cursing as with (her) garment,
So let it enter (her) body like water,
And like oil into (her) bones.
Let it be to (her) like the garment which covers (her),
And for a belt with which (she) girds (herself) continually.
Let this be the LORD’S reward to my accusers,
And to those who speak evil against my person.” (Psalm 109)
Yes, IF Jesus is your Lord you are redeemed from the curse of the law, but you cannot walk in gross sin and deliberately contrived injustice and expect Him to ignore what you KNOW needs to be done to make right the curse you have put upon an innocent person by your lies. If you believe you can, perhaps you are not truly born of the Blood of Jesus Christ. I urge you accusers to do what’s right in GOD’S SIGHT. It’s very clear in His Word. Do not stand at the gates of eternity saying, “LORD! LORD!...” and have Him turn to you and say, “I never knew you...”
