A Prayer For When I Can’t Understand God’s Plan

Dear Father,

Today was one of those days-

You know the ones.

When life just doesn’t make sense.

When the world seems so unfair.

Because it is unfair.

We need you, Lord. I need you.

I need you to wrap your arms around me

And help me understand

That it’s a good thing I don’t understand everything.

How can I possibly comprehend Your plan of

intricacy and detail for the entire world?

You are God.

And I am not.

You spoke the world into existence.

You shaped humans from dust.

And only You can create beauty from ashes.

May I anticipate the exquisite work of Your hands

to transform my nothing

into Your everything.

  1. Guess my today is already your yesterday…

  2. Rachel, I could feel your heart as I read your prayer… today was one of those days for me until God answered me with a call from a friend whose life has also been filled with “those days” lately but yet her words and our conversation brought me peace. May the Lord answer your prayer with His peace and love beyond all understanding! Praying for you and yours! Mary
