I come to You, Father of light and love. Lead me out of the darkness of my soul. Take my trembling hand so that all fear is vanquished in the power of Your love. I look to You, Jesus, for the assurance that the enemy cannot harm me because I am sealed with the promised Holy Spirit. Though I may succumb to his traps now and again, remind me that victory is Yours. Warm my chilled soul with Your Word. Calm my restless heart with Your presence. Be my deliverance, God, as You dry the tears of my soul with sweet assurances of divine love. Make me aware of Your nearness. Keep me behind Your guard. Surround me with Your holy protection. Turn my eyes away from looking at the storm so that I can fix my gaze on Your triumphant glory. You are my guide, now and forevermore. Fear has no place in the garden of faith that You have planted within me. Under the truth blooming in 1 John 4:18 and the authority of Christ, I pray.
There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear.
For fear has to do with punishment,
and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.
1 John 4:18, ESV
