“A New Song” by Jan Karon – A Favorite Prayer

A favorite prayer that seemed to speak to me at the time of my diagnosis and treatment is found in A New Song which is a book in Jan Karon’s Father Tim/Milford series.

“Father, your will be done in our lives.

Guard me from self righteousness, and from any looking to myself in this journey of life.
Prepare our hearts for all we love, and theirs to receive us.

Thank you for all my blessings.

Forgive this fear in me.  You tell us You do not give us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

Gracious God, I surrender myself to you completely, again.

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything, with prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, make your requests known unto God, and the peace that passes all understanding will fill your heart and mind through Christ Jesus.”
