Uphold me according to Your promise, that I may live, and let me not be put to shame in my hope!
Lord, so often I fear the ridicule of my family, friends, and neighbors that it would appear that You have not answered a prayer and my faith has been misplaced. it is the ridicule that I fear, not the results of the apparent lack of answer. Uphold me Lord, to be firm in my faith and to testify that You do answer in Your time and in Your way.
