LORD, God, help me today to learn to praise You and rest in Your Presence even when everything around me seems to be going wrong. Times like this are like a test of my faith. To pass the test, I need to believe in You and trust You to take care of me.
Please help me when I do it poorly. I want all the gifts of the Spirit in my life…even this tough one, as I earnestly voice my prayers to you right now. Amen and Amen.
“These [troubles] are testing your faith. And this will give you patience.” (James 1:3)
