The Knot Prayer
Please untie the knots that are in my mind, my heart and my life.
Remove the have nots, the can nots and the do nots
that I have in my mind.
Erase the will nots, may nots, might nots
that may find a home in my heart.
Release me from the could nots,
would nots and should nots that obstruct my life.
And most of all, Dear God,
I ask that you remove from my mind,
my heart and my life all of the "am nots"
that I have allowed to hold me back,
especially the thought
that I am not good enough.
THE HOLY "NOTS"
What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.
In God I will praise His word,
in God I have put my trust;
I will not fear what flesh can do to me.
King James Version
Even if I go through the deepest darkness,
I will not be afraid, Lord,
for you are with me.
Your shepherd's rod and staff protect me.
Good News Translation
We cannot change our past.
We cannot change the fact that people act in a certain way.
We cannot change the inevitable.
The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have,
and that is our attitude.
Charles R. Swindoll (1934 - )
Evangelical Christian pastor and author
Let nothing disturb me
Let nothing frighten me
Let nothing take away my peace
May I wait with trust, with patience,
knowing You will provide for me
I lack for nothing in You, God.
You are my strong foundation
You are enough for me.
St. Teresa of Avila (1515-1582)
Spanish mystic, Doctor of the Church
The Last Word:
The Lord is my shepherd
I shall not want.
King James Version
