Prayer for Fear

A prayer for overcoming fear

Dear Father,

My heart and mind are flooded with fears.
Sometimes I am paralysed, I feel unable to go on.
These fears are overwhelming, they remain with me day and night.
Yet I hold onto your truth.
You have told us not to fear, for you have overcome the world.
So I cling to you, I trust in your promises, that you will never fail me, never forsake me.
In moments of such crippling fear,
I choose to hold your hand.
I know you have experienced the most fearful places,
I know that you have risen again.

In you all promises meet and new life begins.
You are my Saviour,
I hide in you,
Protected by your love,
And sheltered by your grace.
My Father.

Prayer For Quiet Confidence

O God of peace, who hast taught us that in returning and rest we shall be saved, in quietness and in confidence shall be our strength: By the might of thy Spirit lift us, we pray thee, to thy presence, where we may be still and know that thou art God; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
