Recently my husband Bobbie was in the hospital. He was there for 9 days, two of which he spent in ICU, and the doctor was not so optimistic. But, I was determined to stand on God’s promise to me. I cannot say there were not times that I walked the floors with tears flowing down my face, while talking to God. I cannot say there were not times where doubt and fear tried taking up residence in my thoughts concerning the matter.
I called every prayer warrior I knew and in the midst of Bob’s circumstances and my quest for peace, there were times I was compelled to pray for others. Then the attending physician called saying he was coming out of ICU and going to PCU (Progressive Care Unit) Which meant he was getting better and no longer needed critical care. But we were still not out of the woods yet, because now it was a question of his returning back to consciousness. Every day at 12 noon (I am part of a prayer circle) we continued to not only pray for Bobbie; but others that were added to the prayer list as well. Bob finally came home. And although he can be a handful at times, it was a blessing to have him with us for Christmas. I am thankful for all those who prayed with me through that trial. But I am most grateful and so very thankful to God; Who is teaching me to trust Him even the more. God DOES hear and ANSWER our prayers.
Here is a prayer I hope wll help you in those moments of doubt and fear. Don’t just gloss over this prayer, but take the time to pray it out of a sincere heart… 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. Please develop that deeper trust in me. God I desperately need it and want to trust You more. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
