a prayer for fear and faith

Gracious Heavenly Father,

You are with us. With us in the fire, in the storm, in the battle, in our homes and in the streets. You are our shelter in times of trouble. You calm the wind and waves and make our hearts be still.

Thank you for giving us the emotion of fear, for it helps keep us wise and safe in times of trouble.

Thank you for the gift of faith, bestowed upon us only by You through Your Son Jesus Christ.

Teach us to stand in the truth that faith and fear are not opposites. Help our fear to drive us to a deeper faith in You, not to be reckless with our lives and the lives of others, but with a surety in who You are and what You ask of us. Teach us that the opposite of faith is being fickle, and remind us of the steady truth of who You are.

That You are for us, not against us.

That You are good and kind, just and powerful.

That You love Your children deeply.

May this be the truth in which we stand, sure of who You are.

Deepen our faith through our fear, learning that you are our refuge and strength.We may fear an outcome, but we trust in You. Teach us to lean into the right find of courage and faith.
