Praying Through: Psalm 23:4b My Only Fear

The Psalm

Psalm 23:4b (CSB) I fear no danger

The Prayer

My Only Lord

Death, sin, hell, and Satan

  • I still fear them
  • I still alarmed at their presence
  • I am still scared

Yet, I am reminded

  • that you came into our world
  • not full of power
  • but filled with vulnerability
  • at the risk of your life
  • and the lives of your parents
  • you could not protect yourself
  • but your family were at the mercies
  • of your Father's great sovereignty.

And yet, I am further reminded

  • because you gave up your life
  • because you handed your body over to be crucified
  • you defeated my fears
  • you have conquered my actual enemies

I fear no evil

  • I fear you
  • You are my King and my God
  • You alone have the power
  • to save me
  • from despair.
