    I have a fear of not knowing my kids answers as to WHY. For example when they ask Why is this virus happening. I have to remember to turn to God to help guide my answers. I need to not be afraid to answer but help them figure it out and lead the conversation back to God.

  2. Jason Davidson says:

    The fear of failure. There are many things I have though of doing and wanting to do in my life but FEAR has kept me at bay. The devil has won those battles and kept me at bay, but I know with God’s help I can break through the fear and live the life God has for me.

  3. Cory Bullock says:

    After listening to the small group message Wednesday night about leading courageously this compliments that message well.

  4. Brandon W says:

    Lord, please help me overcome the fear of not being in control, and reminded that things are best in Your hands.

  5. James says:

    Trouble with Perfection. Fear that it’s not good enough or won’t be good enough can paralyze me.

  6. Brent Voight says:

    “Preparatory stimulus” That’s great Vince!

    My fear: fear of disappointing others

  7. Davin says:

    Fear of failure is always my biggest.. In any situation I tend to seek approval and when I don’t get it I feel like I’ve failed.

  8. Vincent Howard says:

    I honestly don’t run around with a lot of fear, but that doesn’t mean I don’t have moments of doubt, going through the various ‘What-If’s’ in my mind.
    Am I WORTHY of God’s love…and I WORTHY of Christ’s sacrifice? I AM a failed man…a fallen human. There isn’t one thing…not ONE that earns me the right to the gift of salvation…and yet I have it.

  9. Eddie Ackerman says:

    fear of not being able to go to physical church services before summer time

  10. David says:

    The one fear I want to give up is the fear of giving up my well paid job and having enough finances to sustain my wife and I in our senior years. It boils down to the fear of not being able to trust God enough to provide for us. I am giving up this fear today!!!

  11. J.T. Fetherolf says:

    I choose to give up the fear I have surrounding my parenting / discipline. I want to focus less on my daughters’ behavior and more on helping them understand who God is. If they can grow to know and love God, their behavior will reflect that.

  12. Michael McClain says:

    For a long time, I was not a good husband and I fear falling back into those old ways. Ironically, that fear of my old self sometimes keeps me from being the changed husband I should be now. I pray for the ability to let go of that fear, forgive myself and move forward into being the husband God created me to be.

  13. Kenneth McClatchey says:

    Sorry guys, I spent 15 hrs on the road both Monday and Tuesday getting home at 4:30am today so
    I’m a bit fatigued. I think my greatest fear is about things I have no control over – my prodigal children, will they return to the Lord and WHEN????
    Lord, I once again surrender my children to you knowing how great your love for them is.

  14. Grant says:

    Right now I think the unknown of what having a baby at a hospital will look like. It’s not going to be what we thought we were going to be going through. It will look very different.

    There is also the thoughts I’ve been having about “What does socializing look like after this? I’m I going to be afraid of being closer than 6ft to someone? What does Sunday morning look like? I’m not sure how we come out of this being safe yet not living in fear. It’s something I’m working through and asking God to show me what this will look like.

  15. Jon Brady says:

    I also struggle with fear of failure or even fear of getting out of my comfort zone. I pray that God grants me strength and confidence when a new challenge arises.

  16. Steve says:

    I have a real fear of failure. I find that it stops me from trying new things because if I don’t do well, I’ll look foolish and so I don’t even try. Also in the projects that I am working on, it saps the strength out of me and I want to give up.

  17. David says:

    Fear of the future sometimes grips me, which is unnecessary because I know whose I am and that He will not leave me.

  18. Dale Nerison says:

    Fear of taking the initiative to lead. Lord help to trust you, to let go of fear that causes me to delay. Thank you for being with me and upholding me with your righteous right hand.

  19. Scott says:

    Dropping these fears at the foot of the cross today: expressing doubt, success, responsibility.

  20. Jeremy says:

    FEAR OF FAILURE!!! My homeboy Chad nailed it. (Sorry, my gangsta talk is rearing it’s ugly head again.)

  21. Matt R says:

    I can occasionally become awkward in some social situations, particularly ones where I am unexpectedly in a conflict or a heightened emotional interaction with someone. I know that these anxieties come from fear (fear of being misrepresented, fear of saying the wrong thing or having my words interpreted in a way that I did not mean to convey). In these moments I need to “be still and know you are God”, knowing that I am in Him and He is in me and that with His help, I will represent His Kindgom well. I pray that I KNOW this now and in these awkward situations.

  22. Chris says:

    Fear of engaging my family members who are more abrasive right now. I think they are scared and looking for leadership that I need to provide, but each of them needs some kind of encouragement right now. God help me put them first and not be afraid to expose myself or potentially let some other obligations go.

  23. Leonard Phillips says:

    Heavenly Father my prayer is:
    Today i will choose to let go of all fears and allow you (God) to lead, Guide, and Direct my path for this day. And let tomorrow worry about itself.

  24. Wade says:

    Lord, take away the fear of out-living my wife and having to be here without her.

  25. Vince Eible says:

    I would love to give up the fear of not “measuring up” to what others (My Parents, my other family, my ex, and even my kids) think of me. I need to learn to rest in the truth that God loves me and thinks very well of me

    • steve says:

      Hey Vince, know that Jesus died on the cross for you. Let that truth sink in next time you think you need to measure up to some invisible yard stick that doesn’t exist. Consider yourself affirmed as someone whom Jesus decided was worth dying for.

  26. Eric says:

    letting God take over some protection and influence on my children…learn to take my hands off wheel adn let Him drive

  27. Rudy says:

    I fear that I don’t do enough to be in Gods will. I understand it’s not by works that keeps in my relationship with Him, it’s where I fall short that I tend to be hard on myself. Let fear be gone, and Lord God I choose to LIVE ALL IN!

  28. loomster209 says:

    I fear that I will backslide into my old eating habits and regain the weight i have lost,, My pants are already to tight.

  29. Tim E says:

    My kids dying before me. Out of everything in this world, this is the one which can consume my thoughts .

  30. Michael Pechar says:

    I’ve always been pretty good about not living in fear but financial security is definitely the thought that has been living in my head recently.

  31. Chuck says:

    As I stated yesterday once I gave control of my life to God many of my everyday fears, that rarely came to fruition, went away. With that being said there are times that I do go back to fear, now I catch myself, and I would say it is finances. Not nearly as often as before though.

  32. Joe Hereford says:

    Today i want to give up the fear of the unknown. I’m troubled sometimes about the outcome of certain situations at our church instead of just trusting God one day at a time.

  33. adam mather says:

    i fear failing my family.
    fear was i major part of my life until jan 2012. i was riding in a truck with a coworker and we started talking about fear. right at that point is when i realized how much of my life was controled and limited by fear. “dont be afraid, just have faith” fear does not direct me anymore . faith does!

  34. Dave Benson says:

    If our hearts condemn us, we know that God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything.
    1 John 3:20

    I think my fear is of the unknown. I agree with Vince that fear can be useful as it leads us in to the presence of the Lord. If He is all knowing and I am following Him then I can leave the fear of the unknown behind today! I don’t have to get off the train but stay on board and trust the Conducter for what’s ahead!

  35. Andrew says:

    Fear of failing as a father. Fear of watching my kids grow up and turning away from a relationship with God.

  36. Alex says:

    I give up my fear that I won’t be able to find a job after schooling even when before a vaccine is developed

  37. Chad Husted says:

    Fear of rejection often paralyzes me. Been living with it for as long as I can remember.

  38. Lewis says:

    Fear of meeting with my bosses on the job site. It grips me every time I hear they are coming out.

  39. Darin Palmer says:

    My fear of not having all the answers. To think I need to fix everything when in fact I just need to be still and listen!!

  40. Mike Sirignano says:

    My fear is that my unsaved mother, daughter and sister will die in their sin

  41. Jesse Skytland says:

    I have a fear of success in my life. I see myself as a great child of God, and sometimes I just don’t understand the minimal situations that are incountered that I need to overcome. My ability to become a better person seems not always achievable and it allows me to be discouraged at moments. As I look the the light, it enables me to be stronger and wiser as I grow in many ways.

  42. Matthew Barker says:

    The fear of disappointing family and friends if we aren’t able to get back to the states this summer.

  43. Tim Kelley says:

    I have the disease to please, therefore if I don’t meet the standard the fear of failure and acceptance rears it’s head. Lord, today I seek to live by your word and the principles there in not man’s opinion, criticism or acceptance. “Maturity doesn’t come with age but the acceptance of responsibility,” quote by Ed Cole. Men let’s take our role seriously and be the man of God we all are called to be without fear of failure or judgement of others. Keep swinging for the fence!

  44. Michael says:

    I have fear of following Christ with my whole heart sometimes, to be radical for him, because of all the the things I fear losing

  45. Brian says:

    I would like to give up the fear of a neighbor who has threatened me and wronged me previously. I need to forgive him and lay this fear at Jesus feet.

  46. Walter says:

    Fear falling short of God’s will.
    At the same time I know his grace and mercy will strengthen me.

  47. Dean Wendler says:

    Today I make the choice to stop perpetuating fear. I am giving up the fear of talking on the phone. I hate to use the phone and will go out of my way to avoid talking on the phone. Especially during this time, I am missing out on connecting with others.

  48. Jay Wegiel says:

    I honestly can’t think of a particular fear that cripples me. I bring each and every fear to God as they crop up.

  49. JP says:

    Through God’s grace and loving brothers and sisters I have already laid my fear for the future at the feet of Jesus. I now work to live with divine fearlessness

  50. John Harding says:

    It’s always a small irritating fear of the future. Fear of things that will be beyond my control.

  51. Alex Riddle says:

    I am fearful about losing my job . I have identified it is not a rational fear. Several people have told me that I am doing an excellent job. I need to leave my worries/fear behind about losing that job regardless of what my boss says. Thank you for listening.

        • Alexander Riddle says:

          Thank you, Vince. I start each day with your content, and it helps me tremendously. Your work is a blessing!

    • Coach says:

      My fear is that of failure … Failure at anything….family, work, play, relationships, and church community. My anxiety can cause me to not act but to freeze me for fear of future failures. Please God help me to understand this fear of failure and to help me see it as prepreation for success.
