Teach me your faithfulness

 


Dear Lord,

I praise you for your faithfulness to me.

You are faithful when I falter.

You are faithful when I doubt.

You are faithful when I fail.

You are faithful when I question.

You are faithful when I run from you.

You are always faithful, true, and holy.

Your love is everlasting.

Lord, teach me your faithfulness.

I want to trust you in difficult circumstances,

in grief,

pain,

discouragement,

fear,

and uncertainty.

I want to be as faithful to your name

as you are to me.

Always.

Whether I understand what you're doing or not.

I ask this in Jesus' name,

Amen.


Your love, Lord, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies. (Psalm 36:5)

For I have always been mindful of your unfailing love and have lived in reliance on your faithfulness. (Psalm 23:6)

I do not hide your righteousness in my heart; I speak of your faithfulness and your saving help. I do not conceal your love and your faithfulness from the great assembly. (Psalm 40:10)

For great is your love, reaching to the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the skies. (Psalm 57:10)

Teach me your way, Lord, that I may rely on your faithfulness; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name. (Psalm 86:11)


Play this music video by Jeremy Camp of his song "I Still Believe," where he sings about God's faithfulness, even when life is painful. If you haven't seen the movie "I Still Believe" about his life and his wife's struggle with cancer, watch it immediately!
