Face Fear with Faith

Psalm 55:4-5

4 My heart is in anguish within me; the terrors of death have fallen on me. 5 Fear and trembling have beset me; horror has overwhelmed me. Psalm 55:4-5

Lord, we pray for all that live in terror. As we hear reports of those who have departed from the earth, let us find peace in the knowledge that their departure coincides with their arrival.

The loss of others has caused many to be concerned about their own mortality. God help us as we grieve their loss and strengthen us as we find the courage to live. Please give us the strength to endure the pain and the faith to continue the journey. Comfort us with your Spirit. Open our eyes to the joy of the morning. Let us find peace with the new mercies of the day and solace in the grace that accompanies us.

Lord, we trust you. We will not be filled with doubt based on what we see. We will not cast our cares upon you, and not walk as downtrodden people filled with anxieties. You are our protector. You are our provision. You are our peace. Amen.
