Prayer in Great Affliction and Danger. Luther


Ev. Luth. Gebets-Schatz #421.  [Another] Prayer in Great Affliction and Danger  Martin Luther(1483-1546)

 

I know for certain that our Lord God still heartily loves me, even though I sink in the mire of this great affliction and distress, and cannot see how I could possibly be helped.  Yet I commend it to my dear God.  Even now in this misery He looks upon me as a mother looks on her little child which she has carried in her womb, under her heart.  He will create good and blessing out of this suffering.   So I will pray to Him and firmly believe Him that He hears me and will deliver me.  For when the righteous cry, the Lord hears them and saves them out of all their troubles. Psalm 34:17  Amen.
