Dear God, a large task faces me today. There is no evading it. I am frightened. But I do not face it alone.
Lord, let me count those things for which I am grateful. Let me consider all the ways that you support me. I have a hale body, a clear mind, a loving partner, a secure job, sufficient resources, a family that loves me. I have a faith in you that grows daily, when I used to wander in a desert, feeling alone.
Whatever trial you deliver to me today will not be more than I can bear. You will provide, as you always have. Let me trust you fully.
