Prayer Chaplain Corner


By Mary L. Kupferle


Several years ago, while I was talking with a loved friend and Truth teacher, she mentioned that, when in need, she seldom asked God for anything specific.  Instead, she often used the simple words, “God, I am trusting!”


My friend used these words when she studied, as she helped others out of difficulties, and as she went about daily tasks and household duties.  She repeated the words “God, I am trusting!” either silently or aloud with calmness and assurance.


These words returned to me with new emphasis and meaning when I encountered a personal trial a short time later.  I repeated them in a quiet but firm manner, and the burden was lifted and the problem solved.  In other instances that followed, I used this little prayer.  As a result, a desired household article was supplied unexpectedly; I received a gift of two beautiful new suits; longed-for flowers for the yard materialized; an ink spot came out of a dress after I had been told it could not be removed; and important telephone call was completed in spite of seeming obstacles; and I was able to procure an automobile when none seemed available.


Perhaps you think that your problems are more complicated and involved than mine or that you cannot accomplish the desired miracle of healing or harmony or supply with such a small and simple prayer.  No matter what your problem, no matter how great or small its size, God never fails.  But you must turn to God in order to receive the blessings that you desire.  This is what the little prayer “God, I am trusting!” helps you do.  It turns your thoughts and attention to the One who is the source of all your blessings, the Creator of your being.


Sometimes you and I may feel that an old condition or difficulty is too deeply imbedded in our minds, bodies, or lives to come out easily by using so simple a prayer as “God, I am trusting!”  We may feel that we need some great soul-lifting realization or some inspiring revelation to break our bonds and set us free.


Jesus often said that He, of Himself, could do nothing.  He knew the futility of forcing matters or of trying to accomplish things by means of personal will and human reasoning.  He knew the truth that it is always God within who does the work.  Jesus told His followers this, and He told them only to believe, to trust, and to know that God knew their needs, desires, and purposes better than they themselves.


This is still the Master’s advice to you and me today; namely, to trust God’s power above the power of humans.  This is what we do when we say, “God, I am trusting!”  All the most poetic and beautifully worded prayers in the world cannot bring us any closer to God than our speaking this simple prayer directly from our hearts.


When the Master raised Lazarus from the dead, His words were simple ones.  He said, “Father, I thank you for having heard me”  ( Jn. 11:41 ) .  Is this much different from “God, I am trusting”?  The Master’s prayers were always simple ones, and ours should follow the pattern He set.  The complexity of the problem did not alter Jesus’ simplicity of manner and it does not need to alter ours.  We are not to try to impress God or anyone else, but only to come closer to a living awareness of the divine Presence.
