A Prayer for Courage


I read this prayer written by Akanu Ibiam in a book of Lenten devotions a couple of days ago. Fear is a stumbling block for many, an excuse for unfulfilled goals and dreams, and a cause of anxiety and regret. May we be filled with cheerful courage in the face of any challenge.

The words are typed on a picture I took of a desolate stretch of highway in the north of Mexico earlier this year.

  1. Chearful courage ... particularly like that it is cheerful! Yes, fear is so debilitating yes it is such a mirage. Looking into the face of Jesus dispels it altogether ... until we forget to continue to look to HIm and fear sneaks once again in the back door and diverts our attention.
