Prayer to live confidently and conquer fear
In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.
Recite the Creed, the Act of Contrition…
Lord Jesus Christ, it is not a spirit of fear that you gave us but “a spirit of power and love and self-control” (2 Tim, 1:7). By the power of your Holy Spirit, drive all spirit of fear away from me. Deliver me from oppression and fright.
Your faithfulness is a shield and armour for me. I will not fear the terrors of the night, nor the scourge that hits at midday. I will not fear the machinations of the wicked, nor “bad luck”, nor accidents, nor failures, nor sickness. Nothing can destroy my confidence placed in You, Jesus Christ, my Lord and my Master.
Thank you Lord Jesus, for freeing me of fear, complaint, impatience and worry. “I sought the LORD, and he answered me, and delivered me from all my fears.” (Ps 34:4). From now on, I want to live in assurance and confidence, praising you endlessly, my God, my light and my salvation. I thank you my God!
Christ with me,
Christ before me,
Christ on my right,
Christ on my left,
In Christ is salvation
May Your Salvation Lord be with us always!

Let us end our prayer with a decade of the Rosary, more if we can or simply our prayer from the heart.
Take a moment to treasure up all these things and ponder them in your heart (cf Luke 2,19)
Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer everyone. Col 4:6
