Life has a way of making us confront our fears. Just wait for it, the opportunity will come when we must face them. At that point, we can pray for courage to overcome. This is one of the few instances when I am convinced of the power of prayer, as it gathers our strength for adversity, even if we are beseeching only our own selves, in a bit of self-coaching. Or, just maybe, the Universe is (Self-)listening to its children.
I always try to see through to the other side, when the frightful situation will have passed and I have survived in some altered, perhaps better, shape. But, at least the worst would be over and I will have learned and improved from the fearful situation.
The Universe wants us to learn. Fear is its teachable moment.
