Arm Us

Dear Chronic Illness Friends,

There are days when I wake up feeling weak still, as though my brain is one great fuzzy piece of mush, and my body is not capable fo supporting it. The day seems to be one long battle that I cannot face. I recently found this prayer and thought it was so helpful for days like that.

O God, you have called us to be your children and have promised that those who suffer with Christ will be heirs with him in your glory: Arm us with such trust in him that we may ask no rest from his demands and have no fear in his service; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Trust will be my armor, then, when I feel I cannot face the fight.

All my love,

Rachel
