God, help us to truly understand what it means to “fear” you:
Scripture quotations taken from the NASB.
Father, I think that the more we know you, the more we experience a wide range of emotions when we think about you and spend time with you. You are the sovereign God of the Universe, all-powerful in every way. You are the Creator and you have awesome power to destroy if you chose to do so! You know every little facet of my personality and character. You know my thoughts! You know every sin I have every committed and will commit in the future- Yet you love me!
You are the ultimate Lover of my soul. No matter how many times I screw up, you don’t give up on me and put me on a shelf. You call me precious. You have taken your righteousness and put it in place of my unrighteousness, calling me righteous. Thanks to you, Jesus, on Judgement Day, I will be called blameless and will have the privilege of living forever with you!
And yet, I so easily forget to you include you in my daily life. That seems pretty bold and bull-headed considering all that you’ve done for me and all that you are. It’s downright foolish, actually. The author of the Universe wants to walk side-by-side with me daily, and I’m like, “Nah, I’m good. I got this.” God, save me from my own stupidity and pride! I need you. I need you today and every day.
Your power is awesome. Your knowledge is endless. I’m afraid to go through life without seeking you daily and without checking in with you as often as I can think to do so throughout the day (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18). I respect you God, sure, and I know that I would never want to be your enemy. I’m not afraid of that though. I fear my own foolish pride that would make me try to go it on my own.
I don’t fear the world, Lord. Fear would love to overcome me and have me tied up in knots; useless. That’s not who I am! That’s not who you created me to be. In you, Jesus, my Lord, I am more than a conqueror. You’ve got this. The enemy would love for me to believe that I can’t do this and I’m doomed to fail. I will not buy into that half truth! I can’t do this, but in you, Jesus, I can do this and a whole lot more! I trust you, Lord. I fear you as the Lord of my life, and I know that you are on my side.

I am a college student having this embarrassing medical issue, excessive farting that really made me into a big laughingstock. I wasn’t able to handle the shame and bullying I got from my classmates so in my final year I stopped. I made a semester pass and I am currently just at home (I should be graduating by this year :'[ ). I don’t know what to do with my health condition that I suffered so much depression and low self-esteem. Before I was a very good student in fact I am the top of my batch but my health issue completely distracted me that I lost my passion in my studies and got lost in the dean’s list. I always cry at every night when I remember how they treated me. Throughout the day I can do nothing because flashbacks will suddenly bother me and I will get emotional again and again. I am just alone in my room crying all the time. I was completely broken.
It has been more than a month now since I left my university. I feel so frustrated. What is going to happen to me if I will deal with this humiliating, life-suppressing health condition? Do I still have hope? Can I still be cured from this humiliation? I tried my very best: doctors, medications, stress management, and diet but still of no success.
Is this health condition the end of me? Will I never enjoy my life anymore? Dealing with this health condition for the rest of my life is worse than death itself.
No matter how ashamed, pitied, and broken I am, I still believe that there is Hope. No one in the world can ever help me anymore except God. God, I know You can heal me if You are willing. There is nothing You can’t do, that is why You are God. God I don’t know the reason why I need to suffer from this medical issue (I’ve been a good daughter to You and my parents, I am a hardworking student, I am a very good person, I am a very God-fearing person etc…) yes I know I have no reason to ask You and I am sorry for I understand that all things work together for the good of those who love you and the sunshine and rain fall both to the just and unjust. This is life, I am in a mortal world. God for now I need not to know why it is just that I want to be transformed more like You. God, You own my life. My life isn’t about me, it’s all about You. God, You know how many tears I shed, how people mistreated and abused me, how I am so ashamed of myself, and how I simply wish to never wake up again every time that I sleep. God I don’t know why but I trust You. You will never waste a single hurt I have. God I know You will heal me for I call upon You and I truly believe in You. I claimed my healing a lot of times ago but still I wasn’t healed but it doesn’t mean that I will never be healed. HEALING ALWAYS COMES! God I know my healing is coming and I will wait upon it earnestly! I know that You will bless me that you will quiet my heart with exceeding joy.
As for now my brothers and sisters in Christ out of your love for God and sympathy for me please pray for me. Please pray for my healing and recovery. May God heal my broken heart and renew His spirit in me. May I encounter God mightily in my life. May my mess be Your message and my test be Your testimony. God I am very excited to experience Your healing! I can’t wait for that day to come ad all the people who know me will know that You truly exist and You are my God. You heal the sick and save the helpless. I just anticipate that very day in my life. God may You be glorified!
God, I know You will heal me and I claim it!
Thank you for your prayers. I know that God will bless you more than you ever ask for.
In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
