Dear Heavenly Father, at times I become quite fearful about the prospect of death and dying and Lord, I pray that You would help me to overcome this fear and enable me to see death from a heavenly perspective.
I know Lord, that it says in Scripture that the death of Your saints is very precious to You and that it is better to be with You in heaven. I also thank You for Your promise that death has lost its sting and that the grave has lost its victory, through the glorious resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, for which I praise and thank You.
Father, I do thank You that You are my caring Shepherd and that even when I have to walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I do not need to fear, knowing You are with me every step of the way, to comfort and support.
Help me not to fear but rather, may I rest my soul in You and trust that in all things, even in death, You will fulfil Your promise to be with me always and to carry me through, to the end.In Jesus' name I pray,
