God – Years ago, after polio, for five years I needed to go inside the Iron Lung. At first I turned away from the Lung. With prayer, I surrendered to the Lung. The Iron Lung was a process to heal me and to breathe for me when I could not breathe for myself. The Lung gave me new life so I could live longer and love and serve others. I learned to have faith in the Lung’s respiratory process.
Your children and I often turn away from You. We lack the faith in You to do Your will for us. In prayer, please help all of us to surrender our wills unto You. Our walk of faith is a process, just like my Iron Lung was to me. For when we surrender our hearts and spiritual health to You–You surely give us all the nourishment we need. Amen
If you like this prayer, please share.
