Reading and Prayer – November 1

Reading: Isaiah 26:3-4, 8-9

You will keep in perfect peace

    those whose minds are steadfast,

    because they trust in you.

Trust in the Lord forever,

    for the Lord, the Lord himself, is the Rock eternal.

Yes, Lord, walking in the way of your laws,

    we wait for you;

your name and renown

    are the desire of our hearts.

My soul yearns for you in the night;

    in the morning my spirit longs for you.


God, I want to be a person who stands firm and trusts You wholeheartedly. I want to be unshakable and resilient, but that can only happen by depending on You and trusting You. Develop that deeper trust in me, God I desperately need it and want to trust you more. 

Jesus, I feel unsure of everyone else in my life, but I know I can trust you. I pray that you’ll help me to grow in that trust, knowing that you have the best for me, even if I’m afraid no one else does. 

Holy Spirit, teach me to trust your direction. Help me to have confidence in your guidance and direction. Turn my life into a powerful demonstration of what trust in God looks like. Amen. Amen.
