All we need

When we’re in deep distress, Lord,
Your peace is all we need.

When we are lost in darkness
Your light is all we need.

When our faith has grown cold, Lord,
Your fire is all we need.

When we’ve strayed far from wisdom
Your truth is all we need.

When we feel we’re forsaken, Lord,
Your love is all we need.

When we are in the wilderness
Your way is all we need.

Faith

The […] Spirit gives great faith (1 Corinthians 12:9; NLT).

My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? (Mark 15:34; NLT).

Father, I entrust my spirit into your hands! (Luke 23:46; NLT).

***************************************

Lord Jesus,

Give me faith
As strong as yours;

For even when you felt
Utterly forsaken by our Father,

You still trusted him
Completely,

Committing your soul
Into his hands

At the very moment
Of your death.

Gethsemane

Father, if you are willing, please take this cup off suffering away from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine (Luke 22:42; NLT).

I trust in God, so why should I be afraid? (Psalm 56:4; NLT).

My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? (Mark 15:34; NLT).

********************************************

Father,

In Gethsemane,
Christ begged you

To take away the suffering
He faced.

But you did not,
And he embraced your will.

So, may we face our suffering
With his courage,

Even when we, like him,
Feel you’ve forsaken us.
