“A Prayer For Assurance”

April 21, 2016

Praying man Father, we thank You for the powerful God that You are. Even the winds and waves recognize You as Creator and obey the voice of the Master.  Your Word is a lighthouse that directs us safely toward heaven when the furious waves swirl about us and the water rises up to our necks. I confess to You that my doubts rise up when Your voice is silent. In these kinds of circumstances I begin to wonder if You really do care. Instead of questioning Your care for me, help me to prove my faith by trusting You even when You are silent. I want to persevere in prayer and understand Your overall plan in these matters that concern me. And when I don’t understand Your plan help me to trust You because faith that cannot be tested is faith that cannot be trusted. Keep us firmly anchored in Your loving promises, remembering that if it matters to me, it matters to You. You’ll hold me up as I tread above the troubling waters and swim to safety. Or You will command the waters to descend. Either way, with Your guidance and strength, I will endure to the very end, by Your merciful hand. Amen.
