Remembering God
Prayer Theme: In Crisis

I have no other helper but you, O God.

I pray to you.

Only you can help me.

My present misery is too great.

Despair grips me, and I am at my wits end.

O Lord, Creator, Ruler of the world,

I thank you that you have brought me through.

How strong the pain was —

but you were stronger.

How deep the fall was —

but you were even deeper.

How dark the night was —

but you were the noonday sun in it.

You are our father, our mother, and our friend.


Unknown; from the African tradition

Prayer, crisis, gratitude, joy, hope
