Dear Father,

Right now I feel afraid, scared and uncertain…  I know that fear can be overcome if I speak Your Word into my situation… so I come to You… 
When I feel like I am falling apart … Your loving kindness and compassion holds me together…

When my anxious thoughts multiply within me…  You calm my soul and make me smile… (Psalms 94:18-19)

When I feel unsafe… I run to You … for refuge and strength …  because You are always present in my troubles…

I can be still and stop… recognising that You are in total control… (Psalms 46:1,10)

When I feel afraid… I can be confident by holding Your promises… I know You see and know every cry of my heart…  I call out for help and I know that you hear me… (Psalms 56:3, 11)

When  I feel helpless… unsure of what to do next… I look up to You … asking You to quickly come to my rescue… looking to You alone and not the problem (Psalms 141:1,8)
I am safe in Your shadow… I trust You and take shelter knowing Your faithfulness forms a shield around me… and Your angels guard me (Psalms 91)… 
Help me not fear bad times or news.. but confidently trust in You… (Psalms 112:7:8).

 
Love your daughter…
