Almighty and most merciful Father, whose power and whose love eternally work together for the protection of Thy children, give me grace this day to put my trust in Thee.
O Father, I pray–
for faith to believe that Thou dost rule the world in truth and righteousness:
for faith to believe that if I seek first Thy Kingdom and righteousness, thou wilt provide for all my lesser needs:
for faith to take no anxious thought for the morrow, but to believe in the continuance of Thy past mercies:
for faith to believe in the power of Thy love to melt my hard heart and swallow up my sin:
for faith to put my own trust in love rather than in force: for faith to believe in the ultimate victory of Thy Holy Spirit:
For faith to leave in Thy hands the welfare of all my dear ones.
Father, help me to live this day to the full, being true to you in every way. Jesus, help me to give myself away to others, being kind to everyone I meet. Spirit, help me to love the lost, proclaiming Christ in everything I do and say.
