And this is the confidence that we have before him: that whenever we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in regard to whatever we ask, then we know that we have the requests that we have asked from him.

Discipline

Father, forbid me from disposing of what I know to be true. Remind me of my need for your loving discipline. Strengthen me with the endurance that my suffering builds. Your discipline is for my sake and I do not blame, nor lack in understanding of why it is to be this way. I must learn. Wisdom is found in my realizing it is you who make me and not the other way around. Your knowledge is what I love. Lord, I let you in, and if not, use hammer and chisel to get to this old heart. For my heart belongs to you, and that, is not up to me. Amen.
