Day 13 of Prayer & Fasting - Pray to Overcome your Fears
Psalm 34:4 I prayed to the Lord, and he answered me. He freed me from all my fears.
"The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear."-Nelson Mandela
Most of us have experienced our children’s dependence on us to face their fears when they have nightmares or when it’s thundering and lightning during a storm. They’ll wake up, scream, and jump out of their bed. They will walk through the valley of their bedroom, down the valley of the hall, to the valley of your room. They jump in your bed, because what they need is somebody to be with them.
Your hugging them doesn’t stop the rain, the thunder, or the lightning, but it changes how they face it. They’ll fall asleep in your arms. The fear that they have alone, they no longer have, because Mama or Daddy holds them. You help them face their fears in the midst of their struggles. This is exactly what the heavenly Father does for us when we face our own fears and insecurities.”
