Marriage Prayer – Take All of Our Worry and Fear
Dear Heavenly Father,
Fear holds us back when we want to step out. It crushes our dreams and devours our hope. It makes us anxious when we’re waiting on You. It tells us we can’t, when You tell us we can.
So often our fears turn out to be nothing more than worry and stress. For You are faithful with every tomorrow. We’ve seen Your hand at work in our lives and we believe in Your unfailing grace. We know that You’re in control, regardless of what comes our way.
Your word tells us that You have “not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”
And so we’re asking for that power, that love, and that incomparable peace that comes through faith in an unfailing God.
Help us to face tomorrow with hope. Take all of our worry and all of our fear. Replace it with joyful thanksgiving, and praise.
In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God; who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began. – 2 Timothy 1:7-9, KJV
For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. 8 So do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord or of me his prisoner. Rather, join with me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God.9 He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time. – 2 Timothy 1:7-9, NIV
