Prayer Neutralizes Fear

I’m a frequent reader of E. A. Adeboye’s Open Heavens devotional notes. This post was inspired by today’s devotional topic. I’m reminded that indeed men ought always to pray and not to faint (Luke 18:1).

Quoting Adeboye,

If you are constantly tormented by fear,  it is an indication of the absence of an effective prayer life.

My experience
I’ve learned that when I find myself worrying so much about something, it’s most likely that I’ve not been praying about it. Amazingly, when I spend time in prayer over matters that cause worry, anxiety or fear, calmness comes into my mind. I can trust God more. I’ve found out that it’s not enough to just confess the scriptures into a situation, it’s important to dedicate time to pray about it.

What’s your experience with fear, worries and prayer?
