Don’t be afraid! Just believe!

Heavenly Father, good morning! Thank you for the new day. Thank you for joy that is evident in your creation. Thank you for cheerful birds singing in the morning. Thank you for the rising sun to welcome the day. And thank you for the scripture as the base for today’s prayer for Lindsey:

While he yet spake, there came from the ruler of the synagogue’s house certain which said, Thy daughter is dead: why troublest thou the Master any further?  As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe. (Mark 5:35-36)

Lord, I’m here again. I’ve come to sit with you again today. I am ready to begin today’s prayer for your daughter who loves you. Lindsey, do not be afraid. Do not fear. Just believe in Jesus. What a very simple foundation for daily life. Simple, yes. Easy, no. It is not easy to keep clear of fear. And so today I pray that the Lord would be with you to increase your courage and let you be brave at heart. I pray that he would reduce any fear that may appear before your eyes. I pray that he would replace fear with courage. And I pray that you would strive each day to only believe. Only believe in Jesus. And all the glory is his. All the glory! I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen

ESV:
While he was still speaking, there came from the ruler’s house some who said, “Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the Teacher any further?”  But overhearing what they said, Jesus said to the ruler of the synagogue, Do not fear, only believe.”

HCSB:
While He was still speaking, people came from the synagogue leader’s house and said, “Your daughter is dead. Why bother the Teacher anymore?”

But when Jesus overheard what was said, He told the synagogue leader, Don’t be afraid. Only believe.”

KJV translation note

The King James Version is a beautiful translation of the original Hebrew and Greek, however I sometimes find Old English hard to understand fully. 1 or 2 other translations can help clarify what it is saying so I can understand it. More Info CLICK: References
