Prayer for March 22, 2014

I trust in You, Lord.

My broken and weary heart, with it’s pathetic capacities, leans on You.

I will be glad and rejoice in Your unfailing love, for you have seen my troubles and are moved with compassion for me; more than a Father who is moved with compassion on his son, you are always near and always desiring to help.

You care, God! You care about what happens to me, even more than I do!

You care about the anguish of my soul, so I am trusting in You with all my heart.

You are the God whom I seek. You are my God, I have nothing good apart from You!

My future is in Your hands, every moment and circumstance. You know, Father, how hard this is for me to believe! Almost every time I think of the future, I am overwhelmed with fear. Please continue to train my heart in Your ways, so I can rely on your solid faithfulness more than air and gravity! Your sufficiency is more real than these.

In Your hands, I confess that my future will be filled with your goodness, for you have stored up vast quantities of goodness for those who fear you and trust in You with all their hearts. You lavish everything good, sweet and tender on those who find their shelter in You!

You hide me in the sanctuary of your constant presence, safe and sound. Here there is no past to haunt me, no future to worry about; just your present Presence holding and keeping me. Please let me stay here, all my life!

-based on Ps 31:6-7, 14-15, 19-20
