I sought the Lord, and He answered me; He set me free from all my fears.  – Ps 34:5

Reflection. Joy destroys fear.  Fear is the enemy of joy.  If you cling to fear and self-pity you will lose your joy.  Therefore, ask the Lord to banish fear from your heart.

Prayer. Deliver me, O Lord, from all needless worry and fear.  Flood my soul with joy.  Teach me to smile in Your presence.
