Prayer, Plain and Simple

I am always aware of your unfailing love. (Psalm 26:3)

Love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear. (1 John 4:18)

We are encouraged by the Word of God to live fearless lives. The only way to walk this supernatural path is through the love of God, which He pours out upon our hearts through the Holy Spirit when He is given full leadership of our lives. Is it possible to live without fear? Certainly, with the help of Jesus! For if the Lord says we can, we can!

Father,

You know that fear has reigned in my life, causing me to make wrong decisions and wreaking havoc in almost every area of my life. I repent! I turn and seek Your forgiveness and change. Another sin bites the dust! I’m going to follow your command to fear not. I will seek to renew my mind with the Truth of your Word. It is possible, with Your help, to overcome all fear, and to enter into a love-filled life, leaving my fear-filled life behind. Teach me, renew my soul, and help me to cling to your Word that transforms my fearful mind and heart.

Amen

Consider memorizing Psalm 46:1-3, 7 with us!

God is our refuge and strength,
always ready to help in times of trouble.
So we will not fear when earthquakes come
and the mountains crumble into the sea.
Let the oceans roar and foam.
Let the mountains tremble as the waters surge!
The Lord of Heaven’s Armies is here among us;
the God of Israel is our fortress.
