I’m so excited to start sharing some posts I’ve written on fear in this new series called, Trading Fear For Faith.
I’d like to start with a prayer I wrote asking the Lord to help me break free from fear.
I’ve made the prayer into a bookmark for all my subscribers.
Set Me Free!
When FEAR paralyzes my thoughts
and threatens to control my actions
when AVOIDANCE is the one path that feels safe
when it seems like I will never escape fear’s hold
and I would rather stay in the FAMILIAR
Lord, would you enter into those places
hold out your hand for me to reach for
pull me up
LEAD ME to the next step I need to take
WALK ME through the path of healing
out of the dark patterns and habits I’ve formed
out of the trappings of my mind
SET ME FREE from the captivity
of Satan’s invisible chains
into the FREEDOM
of trusting You, Jesus.
I pray that my steps would turn into leaps
leaps into sprints
sprints into marathons
so that one day
I could run past the obstacles
without the weight of fear slowing me down
CONFIDENT that if you let go of my hand
and it feels like you’re not there
it’s because you’re in front of me
teaching me to trust you
waiting with open arms
for me to run to
Lord, with you I am SAFE
with you I am STRONG
SECURE and CONFIDENT
with you, I’m set free
SET ME FREE FROM FEAR!
