As I was drinking my tea and thinking about all of the fear everyone is feeling, the uncertainty and the lack of hope, I went to my computer and typed them all out. I could hardly type the words fast enough.
Here are the prayers to overcome fear that were front and center in my heart:
I don’t know what you are going through right now. Are you working and afraid? Have you lost all of your income and you are unsure how to feed yourself and your family? Are you on the frontlines taking care of others?
I want you to know. I love you. I am praying for you. My heart thinks about you every single minute of the day. My heart aches for you and your loved ones.
My prayer for you today is this…. It is a prayer of rest. It is a prayer for peace. It is a prayer for not just today, but for all days. These prayers to overcome fear are for you.
‘Dear Lord. Please remind my friends that you are there for them. Remind them that you love them and that you have their backs. I know Lord that is so hard to see right now with all the uncertainty around them. They are losing their jobs and their incomes. They can’t pay their bills or feed their families. They are afraid of getting sick and are afraid that a family member will get sick. Lord, please grant them peace that is beyond all understanding. Hug them Lord. Protect them. Be there for them. There is hope in you Lord. There is peace in you Lord. I pray that they can find that hope and peace and hang onto that and not the things of this world. I ask all of this in the matchless name of Jesus. Amen.’
Stay safe. Stay healthy.
