“I believe, Lord. Help the little faith I have.” [Mark 9:25]
“You believe because you have seen me. Happy are those who have not seen and yet believe.” [John 20:25] “Do not be afraid, only have faith.” *“Everything is possible for anyone who has faith.” *[Mark 5:36, 9:24
*If anyone makes requests of God, “who gives to all freely and ungrudgingly; it will be given to him. But he must ask with faith, and no trace of doubt, because a person who has doubts is like waves thrown up in the sea when the wind drives.” [James 1:5-6]
If anyone has “faith in God…with no hesitation in his heart, but believing that what he says will happen, it will be done for him: I tell you therefore: everything you ask and pray for, believe that you have it already and it will be yours.” [Mark 11:24]
O God, I humbly implore…
In my lack of trust, let me live faith.
In my disappointment, let me live hope.
In my bleakness, let me live joy.
In the emptiness of my heart, let me live love.
In my deprivations, let me value what is precious before You.
In my weakness and illness, grant me spiritual health.
In my anger and resentment, let me live generosity and forgiveness.
In my detachment, let me live community.
In the difficulties of commitment, let me be dedicated.
In my failures, let Your Spirit bless and heal.
In my successes, let Your will be served.
In human reality, let me live spiritual wisdom.
In maturity, let me become true child of the Father.
In my individuality, let me live in Eucharistic communion.
In the kind and warm things that I try to do, let Your grace flow.
In the confusion of my life, in my striving and good intentions
—regardless of my doubts, mistakes and infirmities, let me fully live Your will in vibrant, humble trust.
