Father, Your Word says that I should not fear. Your Word tells me that I can run to You when I am afraid. Teach me to run to Your Word when I am confronted with fearful situations, when I am distressed & overwhelmed by fear.

Make me to walk in trusting You so that I will automatically surrender my fears to You, just like the Psalmist when he says, “Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in You.” Make that my auto-default position in every fear I face.

Bring me to that place where I am totally resting in knowing that You “will never leave me nor forsake me …the Lord is my helper and I will not fear what man may do unto me,” for it is You, Lord, “Who goes before me, & will be with me; You will not leave me nor forsake me; I will not fear nor be dismayed.” 

I want to come to that level of trust where I truly have no fear, & I can say from my heart: “In God I have put my trust; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?” for Lord Jesus/Yeshua Messiah, You said: “do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul .. . . Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.” 

Just as You were with Moses, Abraham, Jacob, & all the prophets & saints of old, so You are with me when I am keeping covenant with You, & the same promise that You gave applies to me, like when You promised Abraham: “Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have spoken to you.” 

Make me, now, to surrender all my fears & to remember to put each fear, anxiety, worry, & doubt to death each time they arise. May Your Holy Spirit remind me to follow Paul’s teaching to: (a) not worry or be anxious about anything, but (b) instead, replace such fear, anxiety, & worry with prayer and supplication, © with thanksgiving, making my requests known to You, so that (d) “the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, can keep my heart & my mind from being overcome with fear.”

Thank-You, Father, for Your Word that promises me that I need not “be afraid of the terror by night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day, For You shall give Your angels charge over me, To keep me in all my ways.” And I thank-You that when I seek You, You will hear me, & deliver me out of all my fears. I am so grateful that You are “my light and my salvation;” I need not fear anyone. I thank-You, Father, that You will never leave me nor forsake me. I thank-You, too, that Your Word instructs me in how to approach fear, in how to get rid of/overcome fear, & shows me how to achieve victory over all my fears. Thank-You, Heavenly Father! In Jesus/Yeshua’s Holy Name. Amen.
