Watch the news or scroll through any social media feed and there’s plenty of evidence that bad things happen … even to “good people.”
A fact that held me in the grip of fear for far too much of my life.
But I’ve finally accepted the fact that fear is a faith issue.
So today, I’d love for you to join me as I pray…
God, I Need You – Please Increase My Faith
Father, So often, I find myself crying out, “Lord, I believe. Help me overcome my unbelief.” Mark 9:24
I believe You love me. I believe Jesus died and rose again to give me life. I believe Your Spirit is with me.
Yet sometimes I’m still afraid that some tragedy or crisis will occur and simply be too great for my broken heart to endure. I afraid You won’t answer this prayer I’ve prayed for so long.
Forgive me and help me … Please increase my faith.
Father, You have always been with me in the past, and I believe You will meet all of my needs in the future.
With Your help, I will hold Your promises close to my heart and remember…
You give power to the weak and strength to the powerless. Isaiah 40:29
You hold me by the hand and say, “Don’t be afraid. I am here to help you.” Isaiah 41:13
You will never leave me or forsake me. Deuteronomy 31:8
You supply all my needs from the glorious riches of Your grace, which You have given to me in Christ Jesus.Philippians 4:19
I can … give all my worries and cares to You, for You care about me. 1 Peter 5:7
I don’t need to be troubled or afraid because Jesus “gave the world a gift of peace of mind and heart. A peace that this world cannot possibly give.” John 14:27
I can count on You to be my … “refuge and strength, You are always ready to help me in times of trouble.” Psalm 46:1
Father, when I focus on You … I have nothing to fear!
Your grace is so completely sufficient and Your mercy never ends … I can trust Your promises because Father, “no earthly experience can ever break the bond of love by which You hold me.” (LAB note 2 Timothy 1:12)
The truth is—the closer I am to You, Father, the greater my faith. Staying in Your presence will increase my faith!
So, with Your Spirit’s help…
I will remember all the things You have carried me through in the past.
I will turn to Your Word and cling to Your promises.
I will surrender my fears to You trusting the power of Your love.
I will focus on You when fear lies to me.
I will spend time with You in prayer.
I will proclaim…
I am convinced that nothing can ever separate me from God’s love. Romans 8:38
Father, that’s a promise that will increase my faith.
Thank and praise forever. Amen.
