Psalm 91:1-6 (NIV)
1 Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” 3 Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. 4 He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings, you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. 5 You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, 6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.

God, You are my protector. You are all that I need. Fear is from the devil. Still, I find myself afraid at times. Give me the wisdom to keep me from being afraid without cause and build my faith to keep me from being unduly afraid. I pray that whatever happens, that Your Will is done and that I have no reason to fear. I believe that you hold me in Your hand and that You are faithful. Through Your Grace and mercy, I submit to Your will and worship You. Amen
