A Prayer When Plans Fail

O Lord, sometimes, many times, plans do not materialize as hoped for, believed for, and prayed for.

Thou art omnipotent and scuttle our plans for Your better plans.

Maybe You want more reliance upon Thee. Maybe You want the image of Christ more fully formed in me. Maybe You want me to know who is in charge and thus make my plans into nothing.

Let me not despair of Thy greatness and sovereignty. You put me in my place so I will wholly submit to Thee.

Thy ways are beyond understanding, but sometimes even all the time You eventually through Your grace and mercy reveal why the answer is no because You have a better yes.

Let me not become bitter at Thee or downcast due to circumstances that didn't go my way. Let me not wallow in self-pity or victimhood.

The joy of the Lord is my strength. The joy of knowing Thee and You knowing me. You rule in all things, Your joy because of Christ in me is unsurpassable knowing what You have in store for me at the end of the journey when failed plans and devices pass away into nothingness because of the supreme joy of everlasting life with Thee.

In Jesus name, I praise Thee for failed plans. Amen.
