Lord, You are Holy above all others, and all of the strength that I need is in Your hands. I am not asking, Lord, that You take this trial away. Instead, I simply ask that Your will be done in my life. Whatever that means, that is what I want.
But I admit that it’s hard, Lord.
Sometimes I feel like I can’t go on. The pain and the fear are too much for me, and I know that I don’t have the strength on my own to get through this.
I know that I can come to You, Jesus, and that You will hear my prayer. I know that it is not Your intent to bring me to this point just to leave me in the wilderness alone. Please, Lord, give me the strength that I need to face today. I don’t have to worry about tomorrow: if You just give me the strength that I need today that is all I need.
There is no place I can go that will cause me to be lost from You. If I go to the greatest depth, You see me. If I travel to the most remote place on earth, Your love still finds me. Jesus, even when all deserted You, You were never alone because God was with You.
Keep me from sinning during this trial, by giving in to doubts and fears, and to the voice of the evil one. Instead, help me to keep my eyes on You and remind me of Your loving presence. You are the Holy Lord, and all of my hope rests in You.
In Jesus’ name. Amen.
Indeed the hour is coming, yes, has now come, that you will be scattered, each to his own, and will leave Me alone. And yet I am not alone, because the Father is with Me. John 16:32
