A prayer for overcoming fear
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.
