Prayer of trust

Help us God this morning to submit ourselves to your care. May we remember how carefree we were during our childhood. We trusted our parents, family and friends because we knew they would bring us no harm. We had no qualms in holding their hands and did not feel embarrassed to hug them and ask them for the moon and the smallest and biggest of things. Yes Lord, we were children and so we believed. We had great wishes and not every one of them was fulfilled. But we were happy and satisfied with our way of living. Transform us God today and in the days to come to feel assured in your presence, knowing that you can give us small and great things if and when you want.

Let every day Father, be spent in complete trust in your love for us. There is nothing more we want as everything else will be trivial and insignificant for us. As we sit praying in our house, office space, car, bus, train, plane, work place or walk on the road or in a park, and as we work in the field or garden,  ease us into your care. Like a child may we submit without shame and a care in the world because you are with us. As St. Paul says in 1 Corinthians 4:10-13 “We are fools for the sake of Christ, but you are wise in Christ. We are weak, but you are strong. You are held in honor, but we in disrepute.  To the present hour we are hungry and thirsty, we are poorly clothed and beaten and homeless, and we grow weary from the work of our own hands. When reviled, we bless; when persecuted, we endure; when slandered, we speak kindly.”  Bless us O Lord. Amen.
