A prayer response to Revelation 9:13-21,
the sixth trumpet
Father, uproot from my heart and life
all the foolishness of unbelief.
You created me.
You shared Yourself
with me and
You redeemed me.
When I didn’t know You and had
no inclination toward You whatsoever,
You poured out Your life for me.
Yet I still struggle to trust You completely with needs that are
in the real world.
When the pain is pressing and I feel no relief,
I still doubt.
When the answer doesn’t come when and how I expect,
You know it’s true, Father.
You are the only Source and complete reservoir of all
All that I see, touch, and know
came from You alone.
Yet it’s still not automatic to trust that
You and all Your promises are
absolutely real and
I trust material things and not You?
Money and not You?
Myself and not You?
Father, continue to uproot all this nonsense from my
How many times do You have to prove Yourself to me?
I do believe in You.
I do know, from reason and experience, that You are
always responsive, and
Infuse all I am with that simple faith.
You are the most real thing in all my world.
Help me to live like it.
