If I trust you

A paraphrase of Psalm 25

God, I give everything to you. If I trust you, you will always come through. If I do not, I will be lost. 

Help me to hear everything clearly from you. Teach me well, and head me in the right direction, for you are the only way that makes sense. 

Remember how tender you can be. Forget the times that I have failed--remember my best times. 

You are so good, God. You always help those who feel lost. Those who are poor always know that you are with them. 

If we stay true to you, you will be there for us. Be a God that we can count on! Forgive us as you have promised. 

If we truly honor God, then God will be there in all our decisions. We will be happy, and we will know the favor that only God can give. 

When I am feeling trapped, I look to God to rescue me. Come now, God -- I need you more than ever. 

Take away my pain, and free me from the trap I am in now. Everyone seems to hate me. 

Take care of me; I am leaning on you now. I trust in your friendship. 

Take care of all of us when we need you.
