Declarations to Pray Over Fear and Anxiety

In the midst of these uncertain times, I felt led to write this prayer for you. You can download it here if you’d like to print it out.

Abba Father, Jehovah Rapha, God our Healer, we come before You today praying against fear. Your Word tells us the TRUTH about fear. You have not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound, disciplined mind (2 Tim. 1:7). We have the mind of Christ (1 Cor. 2:16). Lord we declare these verses … these promises from You … over our hearts today.

I will never leave you or forsake you, My daughter. Deut. 31:6

In Me, you are more than a conqueror. Romans 8:37

Greater is the One who lives in you, My daughter, than the one who lives in the world. 1 John 4:4

I am your refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore, do not fear, My daughter. Though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Do not fear! Psalm 46:1-3

Cast your burden upon Me, and I will sustain you: I will not allow My righteous daughter to be moved or shaken. Psalm 55:22.

Peace I leave with you, My peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14:27

Though an army encamp against you, My daughter, your heart shall not fear; though war arise against you, you will be confident … For I will hide you in My shelter in the day of trouble; I will conceal you under the cover of My tent; I will lift you high upon a rock. Psalm 27:3

Father, we stand on these declarations as the living, active, penetrating, powerful Word of God that will not return void but will accomplish what You desire and achieve the purposes for which You sent it. Help us to BELIEVE and WALK CONFIDENTLY EVERY DAY in each of these promises  from You.

Lord, guard us from the enemy who whispers into those secret places where we’re prone to fear and doubt. Lord, help us first to recognize the enemy’s schemes, and then to stand and call upon Your power that indwells within us, and the weapons with which You’ve armed us, to fight every lie, temptation, and threat Satan throws our way. We put on the Armor of God … the helmet of salvation, the breastplate of righteousness, the belt of truth, the sword of the Spirit (which is the word of God), the shield of faith, and the shoes of the gospel of peace (Ephesians 6:10-18).  And, we walk in the fullness of Your love … Your perfect love that drives out fear (1 John 4:18)!

We also pray for wisdom from Heaven for our country’s leaders, Father. Eradicate fear and keep it from taking root so they can make reasoned, not reactionary decisions. We pray for all who are on the front lines … for their protection, for strength to endure, for wisdom only You can bring, for protection against all sickness, especially the Coronavirus.

Father, don’t let the devil gain a foothold in our hearts or the hearts of Your people across the world. Jesus warns us of the schemes of the devil. That he is the divider, the father of lies, the one who comes to steal, kill and destroy … to keep us from trusting God, especially in these uncertain times, where everything that makes us feel safe and that we hold dear … health, security, safety … seems to be falling away day by day. But the rest of that verse tells us that JESUS came so that we may have life and have it abundantly (John 10:10). So we may live FREE from fear. FREE from anxiety. FREE from hopelessness. Because, God, You are our hope!! You are our Peace. You are our Strength. You are our Portion. You are our Sustainer. You are ENOUGH!

God, Yours are words of life – of truth. We speak them into our fears. We soak in them, we pray them back to You. Make them so very much a part of who we are, Father, that they replace every negative, fearful, anxious thought. Give us strong, bold and courageous hearts, like You gave Joshua, when fear came near (Joshua 1:9). Give us Your peace that passes all understanding to guard our minds in Christ Jesus and supersede all fear! (Philippians 4:7). We put our full trust in You for You are Faithful and True … ALWAYS! We ask this in the Name of One who crushed the serpent’s head, the Alpha and the Omega, our Lord, Savior and Redeemer, Jesus. Amen.

Celebrating YOU for Praying God’s Promises

Friends, what a blessing these past few weeks have been. Soaking in God’s Word. Praying God’s Word. Sharing our hearts and prayers for one another. I absolutely love this community of women. Thank you for joining me on this journey.

I’ll probably be quiet for a while due to the wedding just around the corner, but I will be back!! If the Lord lays something on my heart, though, I will share it for sure.

I pray God continues to speak to, and minister to you, through His Word.

Delaying Praying the Promises Week 4 One Week

Sweet sisters, I’m taking this week off to be with family. I shared a few weeks ago that my daughter, Lauren, is engaged to be married in early May. In late December, her fiancé’s precious mother, Bess, suffered a severe stroke at age 59. Thankfully, she lived near them (and her other son and his wife), so they were able to spend the last 2 months by her side.

Bess went to be with Jesus on Tuesday. God has been so very near. But losing a mama at age 27, just 2 months before your wedding is hard. We’re navigating something we never expected. I’m putting into practice the very verses we’ve been studying. Isn’t that like our God? He always goes before us and prepares the way.

Below is a picture of my girl and her sweet fiancé.

Love you girls!! I’ll be back next week!
