Earlier this week my husband and I had a conversation with our children about real-world events and I actually feared that they would fear as a result of the talk. If there’s one thing I know they need to learn how to do, it’s to pray when they are afraid.
A Prayer for When I Am Afraid
Right now I am afraid.
Fear comes in all shapes and sizes;
The shape and size is no matter
Because I know You are the Almighty God-
The One who placed planets in their orbits
And designed the galaxies…
The One who made the two great lights
To rule the day and night…
Then flung the stars into the sky.
Would You who holds the wonders of the earth
Be willing to hold my hand?
Would You who spoke the world into existence
Be pleased to whisper to my heart?
Because I know that Your love is perfect
And Your perfect love casts out all fear-
No matter the shape or size.
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
