Most high and awesome God,
Your will is perfect and true,
In it there are no flaws.

At times  I do not understand your will
And find myself ensnared by my pride
With the lie that my will is better.
Renew my mind by Your Word,
So that I can take every thought captive
And conform my will to yours.

Even at times when your will is painful,
Help me to look to the cross,
History’s greatest moment of tragedy,
So I can recall how you use suffering for good
And sovereignly orchestrate all things for your glory.

Because you are glorious I can hope in you.
When your will is not mine
I do not rage against you,
I am still for I know you are God.

Your will is excellent and beautiful,
On my vision is marred at times,
But your truth and character never changes
Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God!
How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways!*
