Prayer for a Steady Hand

Oak Tree in Oakton, Virginia

By Stephen W. Hiemstra

Almighty Father,

All praise and honor be to you,

my rock, the foundation on which I stand

in the storms of life when none other will do.

For my own knees are weak and my ankles wobble like a blind man walking on ice,

leaving every step tentative and ungracious when others need my help.

Thank you for the example of Jesus Christ

who boldly spoke the truth and gave his life that we might hear it.

In the power of your Holy Spirit,

strengthen my knees and bind up my ankles that I might step out in faith.

In Jesus’ precious name, Amen.
