Prayer for Times of Fear and Danger
O God, you have sent angels, prophets and sages to tell your people to not be afraid. In these tender times, there is much to fear in the world. We sense our own vulnerability and see danger and evil all around. Quicken in our hearts the courage to greet this day without fear so that we may be heralds of the good news of your love and companionship. With you, we have nothing to fear. For love is stronger than hate; hope is stronger than despair. Through the cross of Christ, fear is vanquished by perfect love. With confidence in your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, we pray. Amen.
