'Do not be anxious, or do not worry, about anything' is a part of the fourth letter the apostle Paul sent to his friends in the church of Philippi.

This letter was sent by him while in prison, and he uses it to first of all thank the Philippians for the gifts sent to him via a messenger, namely Epaphroditus.

He goes on to inform them of his current situation and to tell them that Epaphroditus is returning to Philippi after recovering from a serious illness.

Having been informed of quarrels and disharmony within the church of Philippi by Epaphroditus, he appeals to them for unity and an end of the quarrels.

He also warns them against taking on false doctrines, in particular those spread by Jewish Christians, who continually insist that so-called gentile Christians should have to be circumsized.

He then urges them to stand firm against those who oppose them and remain loyal to their new found Christian faith.

The above passage is part of his encouragement and instructions forming the next section of his letter. The final words of the preceding verse, namely 'The Lord is near', introduce the words 'Do not be anxious about anything'.

These words are meant to remind the Philippians that the Lord is with them and that he will provide for their needs, both physically and spiritually.

As they pray, they should also include thanksgiving, to show their gratitude for God's willingness to listen and provide. They should keep their faith and believe that God will indeed give the answer that is best for them.

This scripture can be found in the New Testament, in Philippians Four. This particular verse is Philippians 4:6 and it is frequently used as an encouragement to those experiencing times of need or doubt.

Here are some verses.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4: 6-7

casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5: 7

And he said to his disciples, “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat, nor about your body, what you will put on. For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing. Luke 12: 22-23

Philippians 4:6 "Do not be anxious about anything but in everything by prayer and petition with thanksgiving present your request to GOD. And the peace of GOD which transcends all understanding will guard your heart and mind in CHRIST JESUS."

I believe the scripture you are looking for is Philippians 4:6. There are other similar references to anxiety in Mathew 6, and in Luke 12. Hope this is helpful. May Christ Bless you and yours.

The Bible tells you not to worry in several locations but most notably in matthew it says "who of you can add a single hour to his life by worrying"
