Frank Herbert, the author of Dune has a mantra called the Shai-Hulud and goes.

I must not fear.

Fear is the mind-killer.

Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration.

I will face my fear.

I will permit it to pass over me and through me.

And when it is gone past me I will turn to see fear’s path.

Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.

Only I will remain

Such self-talk may help characters in a book and it might not hurt us either but I believe that fears must be dealt with in the power and with the presence of God.
