My Favorite Prayer

Years ago, back when I lived in Colorado. I read Rachael Held Evans book, A year of Biblical Womanhood. It was life changing y’all, in hilarity and seriousness.

In the very first chapter (I think) she focused on prayer and the importance of prayer as a woman of God and prayed this prayer from St. Teresa each day…probably multiple times a day. It’s been a while since I have read the book.

Let nothing upset you,

Let nothing startle you.

All things pass,

God does not change.

Patience wins all it seeks. 

Whoever has God lacks nothing.

God is enough. 

What I love about this prayer is that it doesn’t say God will solve your problem. He won’t make the situation go away in a flash but rather to stay calm and carry on. Trust in your faith and be patient.

Do you have a favorite prayer?
