Please reveal to me any unhealed hurts or wounds within me that are impacting my full receptivity to the Love You offer me freely at every moment.
Many days my life feels ruled by fear: the large looming fears about the future or relationships, and the smaller nagging anxieties of daily life and tasks. When I get so caught up in my fears I lose sight of You and Your never ending love and goodwill for me. Through Your love I have received the grace and power of the Holy Spirit: the power to love even when it is difficult, the power to grow in the self-discipline necessary to be a faithful disciple. Guide my heart to face head-on the fears that keep me from growing in intimacy with You so that I may embrace the powerful, loving, self-disciplined spirit You have given me.
For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.
–2 Timothy 1:7
