Perfect Love{1 John 4:18; NLT}
Such love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear. If we are afraid, it is for fear of punishment, and this shows that we have not fully experienced his perfect love.

Almighty God,

I want to know You better.  I want to know Your perfect love that drives out fear.  I need Your wisdom and guidance so I can reflect that love into this dark world.  Use me to love other people into Your Kingdom.

Lord, I confess that fear too often reigns in my heart and prevents me from living the life that You created me to live.  Rather than being free to love and serve those around me, I remained bound be fear, unable to share Your love with the world.  Drive out the fear that resides in my heart and replace it with Your love.

It is Your will that I want to give my life to, so I pray that You will open my eyes to what You are doing.  Show me Your Kingdom and help me to be a part of what You are doing in the world.  Refocus my priorities so that my heart’s desire is aligned to Your will.  Le me to where I can best glorify You with my life and talents.  Help me not to be bound by fear so I can be free to love.

In the name of Jesus Christ I pray, amen.
