Prayer: Unexpected Goodness

Here’s a prayer from the Jesuit Prayer Team.

(inspired by Jeremiah 18: 1-11, Romans 8:28)

Lord, nothing is for naught before your eyes.
Should great difficulty come upon us,
we believe that blessings will eventually come
from the apparent ruins of our lives.
When we look back on the hardships of life,
we marvel how unexpected good has come
from such apparent setbacks and disappointments. 
Lord, remove any heaviness of heart that might weigh upon us today
and deepen within us the assurance that ultimately all will be well
because you are God.
