Eliza's Prayer Book
Prayer for God’s Help and Guidance
My Lord, I understand that I need you every day, that my
life is a mess without your guidance and your love. So
many times I have gone astray, so many times I have
been on the point of falling, so many times I have been
driven away from you by my vain ambitions and desires.
You saved me every time, you rescued me in the last
moment, when I thought hope was gone. You were there
for me even when I didn't deserve it. Words are too weak
to express my gratitude. Look inside my heart to my
unspoken thanks, to the silent song of praise inside my
This world is sometimes a huge and scary place. But it is
not so for your children. The orphans of this world ?nd
comfort in your fatherly arms, the sick and the
vulnerable ?nd strength beyond any human law, the
lonely and depressed ?nd a new meaning in their life.
You give us comfort and shelter. Even when our life
seems in ruin, you make us bear fruit and bring your
light to the world. Sometimes we don't quite see where
we are, because our senses are limited, but you know
exactly the course of our lives and you bring us where
you want us to be, where we really belong.
