We are experiencing fears — fears about the future, fears about relationships,
fears about work and finances, fears about our health, fears about our ones we love,
Even fears about You Lord being so distant & so far from us.
These ugly terrible terrors that so often emerge & linger.
Show how to fight these terrify thoughts.
We feel helpless & powerless before their threats.
When our life is facing daunting circumstances or overwhelming trials,
Keep us from the temptation to doubt Your promises
Deliver us from questioning Your faithfulness.
By Your Spirits Filling make us to “Be strong & courageous”
Remind us over & over that You have said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you,”
In Your glorious infinite patience gently speak in our memories,
“I am with you always, to the end of the age”?
Remind us God of all Your wonderful promises, and then call us & empower us to follow
Let us draw on Your strength & courage & joy —
we’re so weak, we can only follow by Your power, to be free from these nasty fears.
