Peer Fright Book
In this book we will be talking about the realities of peer fright. We find it all throughout the world today, no matter if it is Church, our Job, Classes, no matter where it might be, it is found across the board.
I begin this book with a challenge of a, “Do over!” or as people on computers select “undo” from the edit menu, or a car companies refer to it as a recall. These do overs, undoes, and recalls, all signal a desire to rewind the tape of mistakes and make it right through a second chance.
I want us to look at some truths about giving a word, or any type of public speaking, whether it is in front of one’s peers or even on a job, in front of a congregations, even in the world arena, public speaking is said to be the biggest fear reported by many American adults, topping flying, financial ruin, sickness, and even death. So, it is by no surprise that giving a word to one’s peers, or around certain people effects one in the same way.
Most of us feel a degree of nervous apprehension when preparing to speak up or perform in front of a group or around or to our peers. But those who are filled with feelings of dread and panic in such a situation—or anywhere the person might be center of attention—may be suffering from a form what I call Peer Fright.
The fear of public speaking or performance, often called stage fright, exacts a huge toll on self-confidence and self-esteem and causes some people to shrink back, hold their words, their spiritual call, leave school or a job or pass up a promotion. Many, including seasoned prophets, and preachers, professional performers, suffer in silent terror. And because they feel embarrassed, people try to keep their fear a secret, even from a spouse or other close family members or friends. Can you relate?
If so, this book is for you, and it will equip you to conquer your peer fright and fear of releasing all God has called you to release in this hour as a prophetic person. It will give you line upon line applications and prophetic encouragements to walk into your freedom. and be all God has called you to, it will strengthen you to go forth and not shrink back. Enjoy!
