TRUSTING IN GOD'S CARE
Be not disturbed because of the wicked, Nor be envious of those who do wrong; For like grass they shall quickly wither, And fade like the green herbs.
Trust in the Lord and do right, Live in the land and act faithfully. Then the Lord shall be your delight, He will grant you your heart's desire.
Commit your way to the Lord, Trust in him, and he will work with you, He will bring to light your honesty, And make it as clear as the noonday.
A PRAYER OF TRUST
To thee, O God, I lift up my soul,
All the day long do I wait for thee.
I trust in thee, O God, let me not be ashamed;
Let not my enemies exult over me,
And let none who hope in thee be ashamed;
But let wicked traitors be disgraced.
Show me thy ways, 0 Lord, Teach me thy way to live. Lead me in thy truth and teach me, For thou art the God who saves me, And in thee do I hope continually.
Remember thy tender mercies, 0 Lord, And thy loving deeds, for they are eternal. Do not recall the sins of my youth, But in thy love remember thou me, Because of thy goodness, O Lord.
