The Litany of Trust

by | Nov 22, 2022 | Bold in Faith, The SundayMonday Tuesday Archives

Hello friends! It’s Thanksgiving week… how time flies. I hope you’ve all had a great November! There are some big changes going on over here at The SundayMonday, and I can’t wait to share more of them in the coming weeks, but today I felt compelled to share my favorite prayer. The prayer is the Litany of Trust, and it was written by Sr. Faustina Pia, a Sister of Life who I am honored to call one of my friends here in the city! I love this prayer because it covers so much ground and so many fears that I (and many others) have about trusting God and His goodness. I invite you to pray this today (or maybe every day this week!) and to pause and reflect on any lines that stand out to you.

May your trust in God’s goodness expand, and your heart rest in His peace as you enter into this week of festivities!

From the belief that I have to earn Your love … Deliver me, Jesus.

From the fear that I am unlovable … Deliver me, Jesus.

From the false security that I have what it takes … Deliver me, Jesus.

From the fear that trusting You will leave me more destitute … Deliver me, Jesus.

From all suspicion of Your words and promises … Deliver me, Jesus.

From the rebellion against childlike dependency on You … Deliver me, Jesus.

From resentment or excessive preoccupation with the past … Deliver me, Jesus.

From restless self-seeking in the present moment … Deliver me, Jesus.

From the fear of being asked to give more than I have … Deliver me, Jesus.

From the belief that my life has no meaning or worth … Deliver me, Jesus.

From the fear of what love demands … Deliver me, Jesus.

From discouragement … Deliver me, Jesus.

That You are continually holding me, sustaining me, loving me … Jesus, I trust in you.

That Your love goes deeper than my sins and failings, and transforms me …Jesus, I trust in you.

That not knowing what tomorrow brings is an invitation to lean on You … Jesus, I trust in you.

That You are with me in my suffering … Jesus, I trust in you.

That my suffering, united to Your own, will bear fruit in this life and the next …Jesus, I trust in you.

That You will not leave me orphan, that You are present in Your Church…Jesus, I trust in you.

That Your plan is better than anything else … Jesus, I trust in you.

That You always hear me, and in Your goodness always respond to me …Jesus, I trust in you.

That You give me the grace to accept forgiveness and to forgive others …Jesus, I trust in you.

That You will teach me to trust You … Jesus, I trust in you.

That You are my Lord and my God … Jesus, I trust in you.
