The Angel said to him, “Do not be afraid, Zechariah, for your prayer has been heard.”  – Lk 1:13

Reflection.  The demons love to stir up our fears.  It’s all too human to be afraid, but we are not poor helpless creatures.  There is always grace.  Jesus gives us what we need to overcome our apprehensions.  He gives us Himself.

Prayer.  Loving God, with You at my side, I will not be afraid.
