A Prayer for Today

on

I love this prayer because it perfectly puts into words the fact that when I am inadequate, God is enough. My favorite part is the last line. It’s not necessary (or even possible) for me to understand what’s next or where I’m going, but God knows, and I can rest and trust in that.

In me there is darkness, but with You there is light;

I am lonely, but You do not leave me;

I am feeble in heart, but with You there is help;

I am restless, but with You there is peace;

In me there is bitterness, but with You there is patience;

I do not understand your ways, but you understand the way for me.

-Dietrich Bonhoeffer
