Fear not, for I am with you;
be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.
- Isaiah 41:10.
Lord, Your Word says, "I sought the Lord, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears" (Psalm 34:4). I seek You this day, believing that You hear me, and I pray that You will deliver David and Elizabeth from any fear that threatens to overtake them. You said You have "not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind" (II Timothy 1:7). Flood them with Your love and wash away all fear and doubt. Give them a sense of Your loving presence that far outweighs any fear that would threaten to overtake them. Help them to rely on Your power in such a manner that it establishes strong confidence and faith in You. Give them a mind so sound that they can recognize any false evidence the devil presents to them and identify it as having no basis in reality.
Wherever there is real danger or good reason to fear, given David and Elizabeth wisdom, protect them, and draw them close to you. Help them not to deny their fears, but take them to You in prayer and seek deliverance from those fears. I pray that as they draw close to You, Your love will penetrate their lives and crowd out all fear. Plant Your Word in their hearts. Let faith take rot in their minds and souls as they grow in Your Word.
Thank you, Lord, for Your promise to deliver us from all our fears. In Jesus' name I pray for freedom from fear on behalf of my child this day. * Amen.
He shall cover you with His feathers,
and under His wings you shall take refuge;
His truth shall be your shield and buckler.
You shall not be afraid of the terror by night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness,
not of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.
- Psalm 91:4-6
The Lord is my light and my salvation;
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the strength of my life;
of whom shall I be afraid?
- Psalm 27:1.
