Dear Jesus, You are the First and the Last, and the Living One; You were dead, but You are alive forevermore, and You have the keys of death and of Hades. You are the Lion from the tribe of Judah, the Root of David and the Overcomer; You are the Lamb who was slain and whose blood purchased for God people from every tribe and tongue and people and nation. You are worthy to receive power and riches and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing.
I beseech you to deliver me, and all of your children, from the fear of the unknown future; from fear of failure; from fear of poverty; from fear of bereavement; from fear of loneliness; from fear of sickness and pain; from fear of age; from fear of death. Help us, O Father, by your grace to love and fear only you. And fill our hearts with cheerful courage and loving trust in you.
As I travel through the week ahead, may the God of hope fill me with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit I may abound in hope. The kingdom of the world has become Your kingdom, and You will reign forever and ever. This is all we ask, through Christ our Lord and Savior.
