God be merciful to me
on thy grace I rest my plee.
All your promises are fulfilled in Christ,
You have spoken them,
and they are done.
But I have often doubted them,
and have lived at times as if there were no God.
Teach me to ove your will,
to delight in your law,
and to believe that everything you do is for my good.
Help me to leave my concerns in your hands,
for you alone have the power over evil.
Forgive me when I have instucted you in my troubles!
May I glorify you in my trials.
Give me the confidence I ought to have in You
Who alone is worthy to be praised,
and who is blessed for evermore.
-A Puritan Prayer
