Prayer: Free From Fear

Father, fear has no place in our lives, yet it just keeps creeping in. During those moments when we can't stop thinking about how afraid we are, remind us of this promise...

"the one who formed you says, “Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine. When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior." -(Isaiah 43:1-3)

Lord, give us freedom from fear.  -In Jesus' name, Amen.

Prayer for True Joy

Oh Lord, help us to feel true joy today in spite of our deepest troubles.  

No more waiting for calamity around the corner! Lord, today help us to expect the best knowing You are with us and You are protecting us.

For Your word says, "I know the Lord is always with me. I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me.  No wonder my heart is glad, and I rejoice.  My body rests in safety." -Psalm 16:8-9

-In Jesus' name, Amen.
