May 6, 2011: Prayer for Today

He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm.  Matthew 8:26

Jesus,

I spend so much of my time worrying, wondering what the future will hold.  Will Brad get the job he wants?  Will he go back to college?  Will he get a teaching certificate?  Will we move out of my parents’ basement soon, or will we be here indefinitely?

A lot of my worrying is based on fear.  Fear of not having enough money, fear what other people think, and fear of the next big crisis.  I want security and predictability.  Yet you didn’t promise these things.

Help me to have confidence in your ability to calm the wind and the waves.  Take away my worries and fears, and replace them with peace and joy for today.  Thank you for perfect love that drives out fear.

Love,

Jessie

“There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.” 1 John 4:18
