Prayer 298- For Confidence
God is with us: who then can be against us? Whom should we fear? We thank You, O Blessed Redeemer, for your saving help in times of trouble and anxiety. We remember the times we were sinking and You, O Mighty One, embraced and preserved us, even as our will was failing and our hope dimmed. Let us never forget that You have claimed us as Your Own, just as a mother can never forget her children. Let us draw strength from the certainty of Your steadfast Love to then reach out to others in Your Name. You hear the smallest sigh from the depths of our being, O Lord: we are confident of your love despite our many faults. Extend the light of your everlasting mercy upon those for whom we now pray.
