A Prayer About Our Fears

Father God

It is hard to admit sometimes but we are afraid.

And it is not the “big” things we are most afraid of.

It is the little things we are really afraid of.

We are afraid of being forgotten.

We are afraid of being left out.

We are afraid of being told ‘you don’t count.’

We are afraid of not being heard… and understood.

But do we not matter to You?

You who created us?

You, who through Your one and only Son, forgave and redeemed us?

Forgive us Lord for causing fears in the hearts of others

Help us to ‘see’ others

Help us to ‘hear’ others

Help us to ‘understand’ others

As You have seen, heard, and understand us.

Amen
