August 20 Prayer
‘One thing remains…
Perfect love drives out fear ‘
What compels you ,
is it fear
or is it love ?
Fear drives us to act irrationally , illogically to do some things you never thought you would ever do.
Fear will knock you over and pin you down,
chain you to shame.
One thing remains though,
And this is the greatest …
Jesus is always there,
His love remains steady and constant.
He will give you the ability to face your fears in the face of Christ .
Pause here to pray;
‘Lord, I give you all of my regrets and the ways I have let fear control my life .
I give you all of my memory now for you to wash over with grace that redeems and restores my thoughts.
I give you all of the shame that I feel because of these regrets.
May I always see your face first in the face of my fears
through the power of your blood poured out for me.
May I never forget your sacrifice for me.
Your love never fails and will never give up on me.
Your love remains.
May I remain steady and centered in your love today .
When the fears come let me be wrapped safely in the arms of love.
May your love compel us to live fully in whatever comes today and never be driven by scarcity .
For you are enough and all that we need.
1Cor.13:13, 1John 4:18
