Courage is fear that has said its prayers

"Courage is fear that has said its prayers."
- Karl Barth

"And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth,
he began to cry out, and say,
'Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me.'
And Jesus stopped and said, 'Call him here.'
So they called the blind man, saying to him,
'Take courage, stand up! He is calling for you.'"
Mark 10:47, 49

I want to have courage and follow Jesus,
but I am often so weak.
Give me strength o Lord that I can take up the courage
to go through all the problems which surround me.

Dutch version / Nederlands >Moed is angst die haar gebeden heeft gezegd
