Trusting In God

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6

Lord, forgive us our desire to control our future, and help us to put our trust in you.  Help us to put aside hurt, anger and fear, and accept your love and discipline (Pr. 3:12).  Help us move beyond past choices and mistakes and move forward, supported by your forgiveness.  Help us to help one another.   And as we struggle to find the way forward, both individually and collectively, help us to pray as our Savior taught us: “yet not my will, but yours be done.” (Luke 22:42).  Be our strength and shield, and guide us O Lord.

Amen
