Prayer: Entire Reliance

Ah, Lord God, have I come to the place of entire reliance on the resurrection life of Jesus which brings me into perfect contact with the purposes of God? This, it seems to me, is a critical question not for me only but for the church universal. May Your love suffice in every difficulty, every trial, every failure of Your people. May our hearts remain untroubled at such times, knowing You are always with us, You will never forsake us. May our knowledge of Your Presence -- knowing Who You are and how You love us -- bring joy and peace.

You, O All-Seeing One, know the way we take; when You have tested us we shall come forth as gold, without blemish, without spot. May our feet hold fast to Your steps; may we keep Your way and not turn aside, ever treasuring in our hearts Your Word. We give You thanks and praise, Lord God Almighty, Who was, Who is and Who is to come. May we say with one voice, Our God Reigns! Amen (John 14.1; Hebrews 13.5; Job 23.10-12; Revelation 11.17)
