5. A Prayer for Anxiety About Dying from COVID
Slide 5 of 5
I know that you are my Creator. You have a plan and a purpose for my life; nothing can thwart your purpose for me. All of my days were written in your book before one of them came to be, so I know you have already numbered all of my days. My life is in your hands. I know that nothing can keep me from your love that is in Christ Jesus. I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and staff shepherd me through this life. Please forgive me if I have not followed you as the Lord of my life. I want to give my life to you now. I want the peace of a restored relationship with God through Jesus Christ.
I confess that I am not perfect like God—I have gone my own way and done wrong. Thank you that Jesus died on the cross to pay the penalty for every wrong. Thank you that he rose again from the dead and offers me eternal life. I accept the free gift of forgiveness and eternal life that Jesus offers me. Jesus, forgive my sins and be my Savior. Thank you that my eternal life starts the moment I accept you. Help me grow in you every day so that I will live without regret and build a life that honors you. Thank you that I have peace with God. Help me pursue that peace every day through prayer, praise, and reading your Word. Thank you for giving me an abundant life through my relationship with Jesus.
