David Johnson, Queensland regional Meeting.
Dear God, help me to trust you at a new and deeper level,
Beyond the normal tendencies of my self interest.
That my work may be not feverish, nor my heart fretful.
For in you O Lord do I put my trust?
Let me never be ashamed,
Bow down your ear to me, and deliver me speedily.
For you are my strong rock and a fortress of safety
A handhold, to cling to, and a reliable anchor amidst the swirling and changeability of the world around me. You are always reliable and trustworthy.
Lead me and guide me for your own sake too, for I know you desire my love as I desire yours.
My inclinations are not necessarily what you want me to do,
And it is all too easy for me find myself in difficulty or pain,
where I become weak and confused.
Pull me out of any net that may entrap me,
For you are my strength,
And into your hand alone
I commit my spirit.
