Prayer

Symbols

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me (Psalm 23:4; NKJV).

Don’t be afraid, for I am with you (Isaiah 41:10; NLT).

Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow – not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love (Romans 8:38; NLT).

I am the LORD, who heals you (Exodus 15:26; NIV).


Lord,
We have monsters, ogres,
Dragons, witches,
And ghosts
Hiding in the darkness
Of our minds.

They emerge in our nightmares,
And in visions;
During contemplation;
When we’re drunk,
Or drugged,
And when we’re sick
In body,
Or in mind.

But when we meet
These symbols
Of our deepest fears,
Most painful memories,
And sharpest griefs,
We need not shrink from them –

For we can face and conquer
All our demons
If we tackle them with you –
The God who heals.
