صورة في موقع الأنبا تكلا: طفل أو فتى يصلي أمام صندوق، رفات القديسين، أجساد - من الفن القبطي الحديث.

 One of the believers noticed that he had a lot of anxieties and that his confusion didnt solve the problems but complicated them more. Therefore, he decided to dedicate the Thursdays of each week for solving his problems and called it The Thursday club for Problems.

 Whenever a thought chased him and he felt anxious, he wrote his thoughts on a piece of paper and threw it in the box of problems and put the box in front of him to pray so that God would fill his heart with joy.

 On every Thursday, the man would open the box of problems and read what he had written to find that most of the issues were solved. This way, he learnt to pray instead of worrying.

→ English translation of the story here at St-Takla.org: صندوق الهموم.

Two things we shouldnt worry about:

-Things that we cannot solve for, all we have to do is put them in front of God in prayer.

- Things that we can solve for, we start working depending on Gods Grace working within us.
