A Prayer For Those In Fear

Father, You speak to us through the prophet Isaiah, “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God”. Though this passage is somewhat general we know that You deal with the specifics in our lives as we encounter personal difficulties and quandaries. How comforting it is to know that You are alive forevermore and not only go before us, but You walk alongside us in our times of pain and anxiety, our confusion and loss, in our uncertainties. Father, there are so many experiences or circumstances in life that instill fear in our hearts. But we must not cringe in fear because Your oversight assures us that things will turn out for good in the end, whether in this life or the life to come. Though Jesus’ followers were devastated when He hung limp on the cross You had a powerful plan all along and it turned out for the good of all, even those responsible for His death. Father, we seek You believing that You hear us and will deliver us from our unhealthy fears. We thank You for it in advance, through the precious name of Jesus. Amen.
