Litany of Trust for all of us who have difficulties in trusting God completely.

Hello Mamas, hope all is well with you all. Today I just want to share with you a beautiful litany that I just discovered recently.

I already came up in my research before, but I only read it for the first time yesterday. It’s the Litany of trust and I also included a free PDF that you can download, so, you can read it everyday.

The Litany of Trust Prayer

Here’s the complete Litany of Trust:

The Litany of Trust

From the belief that I have to earn Your love… Deliver me, Jesus.

From the fear that I am unlovable… Deliver me, Jesus.

From the false security that I have what it takes… Deliver me, Jesus.

From the fear that trusting you will leave me more destitute… Deliver me, Jesus.

From all suspicion of your words and promises… Deliver me, Jesus.

From the rebellion against childlike dependency on You… Deliver me, Jesus.

From refusals and reluctances in accepting Your will… Deliver me, Jesus.

From anxiety about the future… Deliver me, Jesus.

From resentment or excessive preoccupation with the past… Deliver me, Jesus.

From restless self-seeking in the present moment… Deliver me, Jesus.

From disbelief in Your love and presence… Deliver me, Jesus.

That You are continually holding me, sustaining me, loving me… Jesus, I trust in You.

That Your love goes deeper than my sins and failings and transforms me… Jesus, I trust in You.

That not knowing what tomorrow brings is an invitation to lean on You… Jesus, I trust in You.

That You are with me in my suffering… Jesus, I trust in You.

That my suffering, united to Your own, will bear fruit in this life and the next… Jesus, I trust in You.

That I am Your beloved one… Jesus, I trust in You.

Who Wrote the Litany of Trust?

The Litany of Trust was written by Sr. Faustina Maria Pia, SV, a member of Sisters of Life – a religious order based in New York.

Below is a video of Sr. Faustina explaining the story behind the Litany of Trust and how God has revealed the beautiful prayer to her.

Who and Why Should We Pray the Litany of Trust?

The Litany of Trust was revealed to Sr. Faustina Maria Pia in her moments of doubts when she finds it difficult to say YES to God.

She wants to share the prayer to those who are experiencing the same in the hope that just like her, people will find the courage to completely trust in God.

As I was reading the Litany of Trust for the very first time a while ago (before writing this), the first line of the prayer that says “From the belief that I have to earn Your love… Deliver me, Jesus.” has already given me a nudge.

It struck me because there are a lot of times that I think God will no longer love me like the way He loves others because I keep committing sins, even if I know that His love is always constant for all of us.

God is definitely talking to me through the different lines of the litany.

I definitely need the Prayer of Trust in my life because I have been in a lot of situations where I didn’t say “yes” to God right away because I was scared that it will not turn out good/great (some of the experiences I will share on coming posts).
