    Jesus Christ – Promised by God,

    You have called us to follow you,
    to trust that through you
    God’s promise is true.

    But Jesus,
    we don’t always find it easy
    to live our lives following you.
    So much gets in the way
    Of hearing your word –
    and we want it spelt out again and again
    so that we understand.

    Yet, you never told us it would be easy.
    There are times when we doubt,
    when we don’t listen,
    and when we turn away and follow our own path.

    You simply said
    hope, trust and believe.

    Without you we can’t do anything
    and you have listened when we cry for help.

    Jesus,
    Help us as we struggle to
    hope, trust and believe.
    Help us to simply let go
    and accept what we can’t do.

    So we bow our heads in worship and praise
    hoping, trusting and believing
    that God’s promise is true.

    Amen                                  Jackie Smith
