Do Not Fear—But Pray

Do Not Fear—But Pray Wendy L. Macdonald

Do Not Fear—But Pray

Since You can remove

The mountains You made

You can woo hearts to trust

And turn from wicked ways


Therefore I need not fear

The darkness I see

For You’re able to spread light

And cause evil to flee


My moans of suffering

Are heard by You

Who longs more than I

For all to follow truth


I must bring my burdens

And lay them at Your feet

For You have planned peace

And freedom for all who seek.



Do Not Fear—But Pray Wendy L. Macdonald


God is stronger than what we fear.

Do not be afraid or discouraged because…

there is greater power with us than with him.

2 Chronicles 32:7 NIV


Do Not Fear—But Pray Wendy L. Macdonald


God is moved by our prayers.

And when he prayed to him,

the LORD was moved by his entreaty

and listened to his plea…

2 Chronicles 33:13 NIV


Do Not Fear—But Pray Wendy L. Macdonald


God is our hope.

…but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength.

They will soar on wings like eagles…

Isaiah 40:31 NIV  


Do Not Fear—But Pray Wendy L. Macdonald


God hears our prayers.

God heard them,

for their prayer reached heaven,

his holy dwelling place.

2 Chronicles 30:27 NIV


Do Not Fear—But Pray Wendy L. Macdonald


high above the trees

an eagle circles for prey

I lift my prayers

trusting they will be heard

when they reach God’s dwelling place

  2. Yes, dear Wendy, this post encouraged me. I followed your photos and poetry with eagerness. The line how He more than I wants all to follow truth was convicting. So thank you, dear sister in faith. I celebrate this moment of your recognition!

  3. This blog on fear really speaks to my heart. My favourite verse right now is also on dealing with fear:
    2 Timothy 1:7: “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” We also know with assurance that we can “rest in God alone.” Psalm 62 See verses 5-8.

I enjoy a word in season, so I'd love it if you added an apple to the bowl.
