God longs for us to initiate conversation with Him regarding the things that weigh heavy on us. Matthew 11:28 reminds us we are able to come to Him and He will give us rest and lighten our loads. If it is big enough to worry about, I assure you, it is big enough to pray about. Moreover, God loves when we converse specifically, talking to Him about the details of our prayers.
