Psalm 42:5
‘Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why the unease within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise Him for the salvation of His presence.’

Philippians 4:6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, PRESENT YOUR REQUESTS TO GOD. (NIV)

This is something that we can also do. When we present something to God, it means that we bring (our requests) or introduce (our needs) into the presence of the One who knows us intimately, cares for us deeply and the One who is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we could ask or think. It can also mean to lay before Him or to place at His feet.  In that moment we make our dependency clear – we are going to depend on God in this matter. We are pointing, aiming and directing ourselves towards God.
