Prayer

Life

I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb (Jeremiah 1:5; NLT).

You created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb (Psalm 139:13; NIV).

Three things will last forever – faith, hope and love (1 Corinthians 13:13; NLT).

Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows (John 16:33; NLT).

Be brave and courageous (Psalm 27:14; NLT).

We know that all things work together for good for those who love God (Romans 8:28; NRSV).

 

Lord,
You knew me
Long before you formed me
In my mother’s womb.

You wanted me
To have this life
So I could grow –
In faith, and hope,
And love.

Help me to face my trials
Courageously,
Remembering that
All things work together
For the best,
When we love you.

Amen.
