Dear Lord, I come to you as your child. Bless me, I pray. Bless me especially in days when fear tries to take hold of me. Let your help come down to me as you have promised, the great help in Jesus Christ, who shall come to redeem the whole world. Bless me through your Word. Renew me again and again to stand firm and true to you, for you are my help for redemption and reconciliation through Jesus Christ. Amen.
