The TRUTH Principle (Prayer by Leslie Vernick)
A couple of folks have requested a copy of one of Leslie Vernick's prayers from The TRUTH Principle. Part one of her book was the basis for our retreat at Bonclarken last month. You can get the book here, and below I've included the prayer:
Begin to pray as Jesus did in the midst of life’s troubles:
“Lord, I am beginning to get a picture of what you are doing in my life through my troubles.
Instead of always asking you for relief or help to get out of my trouble, help me to be willing to be made like Jesus.
Help my heart to be willing to be used by you for your glory and your purposes during my troubles.
Change my heart, O God. Amen.”
