Lord, remind me that Your disposition toward me is goodness.
Keep me from the dark suspicion that You are not good.
You act with generosity and benevolence.
Keep me from believing that You are not for me.
You are gracious and compassionate.
Keep me from the assumption that I am beyond Your grace.
You are faithful and steadfast.
Keep me from the opinion that Your disposition toward me could change.
You are rich in love and never petty in Your anger.
Keep me from doubting the richness of Your love for me.
Kurt Bjorklund, 1968- , American Minister and author of
You parents—if your children ask for a loaf of bread, do you give them a stone instead?
Or if they ask for a fish, do you give them a snake? Of course not!
So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children,
how much more will your heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask him.
