Everyone wants to be delivered from fear. Here’s a prayer I’ve had for years and to which I often turn. (I don’t remember where I got it or whose it is, but I really like it!)
“O Lord, I ask you to deliver me from the fear of the unknown future…
…from fear of failure
…from fear of poverty
…from fear of loneliness
…from fear of sickness and pain
…from fear of age
…And from fear of death
Help me, Father, by your grace to love and fear you only.
Fill my heart with cheerful courage and loving trust in you.
Through our Lord and Master Jesus Christ, AMEN.”
