A Prayer

Hold me up, that I may be safe
and have regard for your statutes continually! (Psalm 119:117)

"Lord, I won't have regard for your word unless you hold me up, unless you make me regard your word. I won't be able to trust you unless you give me the strength to do so. I won't be safe from fear and worry unless you protect me from that. I will doubt your character unless you hold me up. Hold me up, O God! Give me the strength to do want you want me to!

Thank you, Jesus, for living the perfect life I couldn't live. Though I fail, you've died to take the blame for my failures.

Thanks be to God who is able and who loves to answer these prayers! Amen."
