DIY Litany of Trust

On the Feast of the Annunciation, Lauren of @brickhouseinthecity shared the Litany of Trust for Mothers that she wrote and prays daily. Lauren also has a line of inspiring Catholic Women’s Apparel and a blog here: Brick House in the City

She certainly prays from the heart…and her prayer spoke to mine.

Recently in prayer, I wrote down my own Litany of Trust in my prayer journal and I’ve decided to share it here, in case it resonates with anyone else!

Litany of Trust

From the stubborn belief that I need to earn Your Love, deliver me, Jesus.

From the stubborn belief that I can lose Your Love, deliver me, Jesus.

From the stubborn belief that I disappoint You, deliver me Jesus.

From the fear that I may damage my kids through my faults and failings, deliver me Jesus.

From the fear that I will be burdened with more than I can handle, deliver me Jesus.

From the fear of future health concerns, financial worries and tragedy within my family and loved ones, deliver me Jesus.

From the fear of making bad decisions or being irresponsible, deliver me Jesus.

From comparisons, self-doubt, negative talk, shame and regret, deliver me Jesus.

 

For confidence in Your Love for me, Jesus, I trust in You.

With confidence that You have a plan for me, Jesus, I trust in you.

With confidence that Your Plan for me is better than anything I could imagine, Jesus, I trust in You.

With confidence that You chose me to be Mom to these kids, Jesus I trust in You.

With confidence that I can hear  and receive Your Message fully and accurately, Jesus I trust in You.

With confidence that You tailor Your Message just for me, Jesus, I trust in You.

With confidence that I cannot be led astray when I earnestly seek Your Will, Jesus I trust in You.

With confidence that I can do all things in You Who strengthens me, Jesus, I trust in You.

 

With confidence that You love me unconditionally and I am sustained at every moment by Your Grace,

Jesus, I trust in You.

  1. What a powerful prayer – Thank you for sharing! I especially love the first 2 lines.
    There are only a couple of small adjustments that I would make for me, personally.
    3rd line: I would change to “… that I am a disappointment to You.” I would guess that our sin is at least disappointing.. our action.. our poor choice with our free will may be disappointing. But not our whole being is a disappointment as we may sometimes feel.
    4th line: … that I may irreversibly damage my kids. All parents sin & therefore, cause damage of differing degrees, but Jesus is the Divine Physician Who heals. So, we try to become a saint with His grace & instead of fear, trust Him with our failings. Easier said than done, but I think that is a good goal.
