My Prayer – His Plan

Dear God, I know that you have plans for me. You alone know what they are and how they will unfold during the course of my life. So far, I have been truly blessed to have lived such a full and wonderful life. Yet, I know there is still more in my future. You have a bigger purpose for my life. Whether that entails having and raising more children, or simply doing all that I can to continue raising the child You have already blessed me with, I trust that You alone know what is best for my future. Does my future consist of improving my health, or will I continue the rest of my life with this condition ?  You alone, dear Lord, know the answer. You have a plan which is all laid out for me.  Whatever my future consists of, whatever Your plans are for me, I embrace them. I embrace Your will with all that I have, and give myself to You completely.  Dear God, I am Yours. No longer will I hold on to ways which are my own. No longer will I fight to get my way. I surrender it all to you. You have bestowed upon me so many graces throughout my life, and I know that I would not be showing my gratitude by asking for more. Dear Lord, I trust in You. All that I ask is for You to help me to love You better and to follow Your will. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord.

Amen.
