A Prayer (for when you don't have one of your own.).

Grant me, O Lord, to trust in You with all my heart.
for as you always resist the proud who confide in their own strength,
so you never forsake those who make their boast of your mercy;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives
and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God,
now and forever.

Thank you for this.
While it's not difficult to find things God always does negatively toward us ("resist the proud"), it's hard to remember the things he does positively on our behalf ("never forsake those who make their boast of your mercy"). Indeed we ought to thank him for them.
