Holy Father, I trust my life to you. I give all my stresses and struggles, my burdens and my cares over to you. For who shall separate me from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? Shall any of the things I am so fearful of or that affect me so negatively? No, dear God, I can conquer and have victory over all these things because of your Son who loves me.
Please help me to be convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate me from your love that is in Christ Jesus my Lord.
Grant me peace in my heart, strength in my mind, and courage in my soul as I face the stresses of my life.
Help me to know that you are sovereign over my life, that I am your child, and that you love me so very much.
