Cast your cares upon the Lord


When fear strikes, one may find it difficult to think straight, let alone take the time to apply a scripture truth to whatever one's thinking or feeling.  During times like these, God within us, reminds us that fear & worry, and any of the accompanying bodily feelings they may bring, are HIS. Therefore, our 'conscious will' self prays, "Lord, we both acknowledge this normal 'fear', instigated by the 'old/false man' self, which is not my 'new/true man' self identity.  As the owner & purchaser of my being, it's Yours.  Thanks for taking it." (1Peter5:7)We've learned that it can be very beneficial for people who find themselves experiencing fear, to carry this prayer around, until they can memorize it.
