Prayer for God’s Help and Guidance

My Lord, I understand that I need you every day, that mylife is a mess without your guidance and your love. Somany 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 lastmoment, 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 myunspoken thanks, to the silent song of praise inside mysoul.

This world is sometimes a huge and scary place. But it isnot so for your children. The orphans of this world findcomfort in your fatherly arms, the sick and the vulnerable find strength beyond any human law, the lonely and depressed find 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.

Forgive me for doubting you sometimes. Forgive me for judging what I cannot understand. I am a limited human being, I can see only this here and now, but you can see the whole picture. The past and the future are always before your eyes and you know the cause and the effect. Everything happens for a reason. Help me trust in you completely and put my heart and my life in your hands.

Help me embrace your will, even when to my mortal understanding it doesn’t seem to make any sense. Helpme become a part of your great plan of bringing light andcomfort into this tired and desperate world. For you are the king of the universe and the God of love, and we are all your children.
