Blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. Because of You, O Lord our God, we will be like trees planted by water that send out their roots by a stream. We will not fear when the heat comes; our leaves will always be green. We will have no worries, even in a year of drought; and we will never fail to bear fruit. O Lord, You know that our human heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it? But You, O Lord search the heart and examine the mind, to reward each person according to their conduct, according to what their deeds deserve. Heal me, O Lord, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for You are the One I praise. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
