For Proper 5C -- Particularly to go with Psalm 146

PRAYER FOR AND ASSURANCE OF GRACE
In God we trust...
or at least we try to. But sometimes it seems so hard.
In God we trust...
you know it would be easier if we saw clear signs that there was a plan. Or at least were sure things would go the way we want.
In God we trust?
Well to be honest we find it a lot more tempting to trust in ourselves and maybe the people around us ...
“Do not put your trust in mortals in whom there is no help”
Yes we know, we trust and we get burnt. So do we rely only on ourselves?
Happy are those whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the Lord their God
In God we trust. God, for those times we find it hard to trust...
Forgive and strengthen us we pray...
...time of silent prayer...
Happy are those whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the Lord their God,
who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them; who keeps faith forever;
In God WE Trust! God is steadfast and helps us grow in wisdom. Hallelujah!
