Worried

Dear Father in Heaven,

I know in my head that I should trust You with everything.   That ultimately, all things work out for those who love You and trust You.  I know that my life is in Your hands, yet I confess to you that I have been living in a state of worry and fear.

I pray that You would remind me now, and throughout the day and night, that I can trust you, and that You care for me.  You care for me more than I care for myself.  You love me to the extent that You gave Your very life for me.  I receive the assurance of Your presence right now.  Even if fear and worry try to rob me of the joy of today, I will walk in confidence, knowing that You will be with me every step of the way.  Even if my future plans are less than perfect, You will direct my steps. 

Thank you for a peace that passes all understanding and that is greater than any sense of worry I feel.

In Jesus’ Name,
Amen. 

 

II Timothy 1:7  “For God did not give us a spirit of timidity/fear, but has given us a spirit of power and of love and of a calm and well-balanced mind and discipline and self-control.”
