Everything is already fixed by God.If we think we can change his plannig it is our wrong thinking.We should do prayer only for his mercy on us.

Amazing to me how this scripture, which seems to encomp*** the actions of; worry, care, anxiety which are not observable activities but the actual process of THINKING.

It strikes me that what is being taught here is very likely the same as the Buddhist idea of EMPTINESS meaning that all that we may think, consider and project is empty of true meaning or of intrinsic awareness. We strive hard to keep our religious preferences separated but an honest view will reveal that God has been speaking all along in different times and climes and there has never been a time when he wasn't represented on earth even now!!
