It was 2 o’clock in the morning, and I sat by my bedside, sweating pro- fusely and wondering how I’d managed to escape. I had just awakened from yet another terrible dream, this time featuring a large python that was pursuing me and about to swallow me. I added this to my list of fears and wondered if I could really be delivered from all my fears in the way that King David was in the verse quoted above. But instead I prayed and a few minutes later I felt safe and fearless through Christ.

Life can be full of fearsome encounters – the fear of not being able to continue paying for a place to live, the fear of all things falling apart in a relationship you’ve devoted yourself to, the fear of having night- mares each time you go to sleep. But in his psalms, David teaches us that when we seek God, we will be delivered from all kinds of fears.

Prayer: Thank you, Lord, for delivering us from all our fears. We pray as Jesus taught us, saying, ‘Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.’

BSL devotions is such a fantastic resource, thank you so much for starting it up and developing the site. I am a Christian hearing person who works with deaf people and have loved the opportunity to develop my understanding of and use of christian signs through the videos. It would be great to know who all the sign interpreters are as well as those who write the devotional content. Perhaps as the website grows in the future, UK deaf and hearing Christians can contribute to the devotion content. Many thanks and blessings. Please keep the site going! HJ
