IN TIME OF NEED
Heavenly Father,There is also a quote, not really a prayer, that I have on my cubby wall, from St. Augustine:
in my present need,
help me to believe that you are aware of my anxiety
and will do what is best for me.
Give me the strength to trust you
and put the present and future in your hands.
Grant this through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
Trust the past entirely to the mercy of God,These are reminders that we are not in this alone, that God is with us at all times. And how about a closing quote from Paul Claudel:
The present to His tender love,
And the future to His providence and care over you.
Jesus did not come to do away with suffering or to remove it. He came to fill it with His presence.Peace!
