Litany of Trust

During this time of uncertainty, which can lead us to anxiety and anger, we should renew our trust in God, professing our faith in the reality that He is in control and that He loves us.  As an aid, I share with you below a prayer called the “Litany of Trust” which was composed by Sr. Faustina Maria Pia, a member of the Sisters of Life. 

From the belief that I have to earn Your love… Deliver me, Jesus.  

From the fear that I am unlovable … 

From the false security that I have what it takes … 

From the fear that trusting You will leave me more destitute … 

From all suspicion of Your words and promises …  

From the rebellion against childlike dependency on You … 

From refusals and reluctances in accepting Your will … 

From anxiety about the future … 

From resentment or excessive preoccupation with the past … 

From restless self-seeking in the present moment … 

From disbelief in Your love and presence … 

From the fear of being asked to give more than I have… 

From the belief that my life has no meaning or worth … 

From the fear of what love demands … 

From discouragement … 

That You are continually holding me, sustaining me, loving me… Jesus, I trust in You 

That Your love goes deeper than my sins and failings and transforms me …  

That not knowing what tomorrow brings is an invitation to lean on You … 

That You are with me in my suffering… 

That my suffering, united to Your own, will bear fruit in this life and the next … 

That You will not leave me orphan, that You are present in Your Church … 

That Your plan is better than anything else … 

That You always hear me, and in Your goodness always respond to me … 

That You give me the grace to accept forgiveness and to forgive others… 

That You give me all the strength I need for what is asked… 

That my life is a gift … 

That You will teach me to trust You … 

That You are my Lord and my God … 

That I am Your beloved one …
