Integration of Faith and Life

Teach us, O Lord, to pray truthfully in your name. Free us from our foolish trust in ourselves and in the works of our hands and minds. Help us to pray in absolute trust that whatever You send us is for our good; and help us to accept the surprising things for which we have not prayed. Give us the trust that all events, even suffering and death, are for us occasions to glorify You and, with You, the One who sent You.
