Eliza's Prayer Book
Prayer in Times of Fear
My Lord, why am I so frightened? Why is my spirit so
weak? Where is the faith that can move mountains?
Where is the strength that can overcome death?
I know I am strong if you make me strong, and my
weakness becomes strength in your presence. Touch my
heart with a love beyond understanding and I will turn
to you like the sun ?ower turns its face towards the sun.
We feel small because we keep looking into the ground.
We feel weak because we drift away from your life-
giving force. Teach us to lift our eyes towards your
heavens and to ?nd our strength beyond the clouds that
darken the horizon.
Let us drink from your spring of living water, take us
further than our dreams, so that we can conquer our fears
and count all our troubles as nothing.
