A prayer for overcoming fear

Heavenly Father, my heart and mind are flooded with fears.
Sometimes I am paralysed, I feel unable to go on.
These fears are overwhelming, they remain with me day and night.
Yet I hold onto your truth. You have told us not to fear,
for you have overcome the world.
So I cling to you, I trust in your promises,
that you will never fail me, never forsake me.
In moments of such crippling fear, I choose to trust in you.
I know you have experienced the most fearful situations,
I know that you have risen again.
In you all promises meet and find their fulfilment.
You are my Saviour, I hide in you, protected by your love,
And sheltered by your grace.
Grant me the courage to do your will,
No matter what difficulties I may face.
Amen.
