Heavenly Father, we thank you that your Word teaches us that you are merciful toward those who doubt. We confess that sometimes we experience doubt. Sometimes we doubt that you love us. Sometimes we doubt that you will be true to your promises toward us. Like others who have turned to you beforehand, we pray: "I believe; help me overcome my unbelief!" Help us to trust you in the good times and the hard times, and when things just don’t make sense for us. In Jesus’ name, amen.
