25.4.23: Trust

While I was praying without words last Sunday, I glimpsed this prayer. It was extremely difficult to catch hold of, and to put into words, but I’ve done my best.

O LORD, you have examined my heart and know everything about me (Psalm 139:1; NLT). 

You know all about me.
Before a word is on my tongue
You know it completely.

I needn’t even ask you
To heal me, because
You already know how deeply
I long for your touch.

All I need to do
Is to have courage,
Trusting that you have forgiven
All my sins,

That you won’t let me be tried
Beyond what I can endure,
That you will bring good
From all my suffering,

And that you will heal me,
When the time is right.

I am the LORD who heals you (Exodus 15:26; CSB). 

At the right time, I, the LORD, will make it happen (Isaiah 60:22; NLT).


Before a word is on my tongue you, LORD, know it completely (Psalm 139:4; NIV).

Then some people appeared, bringing a person who was paralyzed, stretched out on a pallet. Seeing their faith, Jesus said to the paralyzed person, “Courage, my child, your sins are forgiven” (Matthew 9:2; TIB). 

He forgives all my sins (Psalm 103:3; NLT). 

God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them (Romans 8:28; NLT). 

No trial has overtaken you that is not faced by others. And God is faithful: He will not let you be tried beyond what you are able to bear, but with the trial will also provide a way out so that you may be able to endure it (1 Corinthians 10:13; NET).
