But as it is written: What no eye has seen and no ear has heard, and what has never come into a man’s heart, is what God has prepared for those who love Him. 1 Corinthians 2:9 (CSB)


The way we live and behave reflects what we believe. God has all sorts of good and exciting plans and experiences in store for us, often beyond our dreams. Sometimes I forget this and try to take too much control. This burdens and stresses me. It seems that for whatever reason (usually fear) I don’t trust God. 

To be ‘free’ we need to trust God. Better still it would be great for the two us if we could both trust God more. This is simple but not always easy. If you are like us it would probably make sense if we asked for God’s help … help to know and trust him more.

Are there any areas in which you’re struggling to trust God in right now?

Prayer (as a couple)

Dear Lord. We cannot get our heads around how much you love us and how trustworthy you are. You have good and exciting plans and promises in store for us and we don’t trust you enough. Please forgive us. Please help us to know you more through your word and trust you more through the power of the Holy Spirit. May our lives reflect what we believe and trust and may our lives please you. Amen

Prayer (for another couple)

Dear Lord. We lift up _____ and _____ to you. May they know and trust you more through your word and through the Holy Spirit. Please give them also the wisdom to recognise the things that they cannot, or do not need to do or control and to leave the rest to you.  Amen
