We Cling to Our Fears (Mark 9:2-9)

Our worries and fears weigh us down at times.
We know that we are to depend on you, and yet we cling to our fears.
We tell ourselves to lift our concerns up to the Lord and He will assume our burdens.

We cling to our burdens.
And, yet, even while we do that, we know that you already know us.
You, who formed us before we were born, you know what worries us.
You know what fears keep us up at night.

Our world is full of uncertainty.
We can be filled with fear.
And , yet, we are also filled with your strength.
You, who formed us before we were born, you have given us the strength we need.
We know that you are with us.
We ask that you be with ___ granting them your peace and healing grace.

We let go of our fear.
We know that we were made in your image.
We know that before our birth, you celebrated us, knowing us within every inch of our being.
We are your children, Lord.
You know what our hearts yearn for, before we even ask you,
We raise our fears, our burdens and and our concerns to you.

As your children, we use the words your Son taught us,
“Our Father…”
