A fear overcome

The Christian Science Monitor

Recently I saw a story on television about a course designed to help people deal with phobias. The program showed a group of people who were afraid of flying, and the reporter stated that the best these individuals could hope for was to learn how to live with their fears, because they could not expect to overcome them. The story reminded me how I myself had overcome, through prayer, an almost paralyzing fear of driving an automobile.

Is it really possible to overcome fear through prayer? It must be. The Psalmist sang, "I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears." Ps. 34:4. And the New Testament tells us that "there is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear." I John 4:18.
