The Effect of a Spiritual Formation Program on Worry Reduction

Scott A Hamilton
The project was designed to help people reduce worry utilizing two spiritual formation practices: daily Bible reading and Praying the Ordinary. Teaching and training participants (twenty-five adult Christ-followers at Foundation Church, Sapulpa, Oklahoma) over a twelve-week period to pray and apply scriptures specifically addressing worry reduction and trusting in God throughout their day proved successful. Pre- and post program assessments showed significant positive change (3 of 5 sub-scales of the MCQ-30) with participants reducing worry and increasing trust in God.
