I feel overwhelmed and need God’s protection
It only takes one look at the world around us to see that we are living in an overwhelming time in history. We are overwhelmed with racial injustice. We are overwhelmed with COVID-19. We are overwhelmed with heartache. Overwhelmed with information. Overwhelmed with education. Overwhelmed with conflict. Overwhelmed with relationship struggles. Overwhelmed with life. But God’s Word offers the help and hope we need in these uncertain days of overwhelm.
This is a prayer to pray in moments of fear and attack. When we need God’s protection, sometimes we try to suit up with our own strength. But we can’t fight our battles and expect to win without God’s protection and strength.
Psalms 56:3, 11 NLT But when I am afraid, I will put my trust in you. I trust in God, so why should I be afraid? What can mere mortals do to me?
To overcome this fear requires us to trust God and believe His word even when we feel surrounded.
