Prayer for Our Fears

God of hope and joy,

You are with me,
and in your presence,
I will not be afraid

of the world,
for it is your creation;

of the future,
for you have already redeemed it;

of the unknown,
for surely you have seen it;

of the stranger,
for she was made in your image,

of my weakness,
for you will give me strength.

of the darkness,
For I carry the light with me.

You are there,
and I am not alone.

I will not be afraid.
