A prayer to grow in hope

When difficulties arise in our lives, it can be a struggle to maintain hope. The future may look bleak, or even uncertain, and we don’t know what to do.

St. Faustina, a Polish nun who lived in the early 20th century, received many private revelations from Jesus and one of the primary messages he relayed to her was trust. He said to her, “The graces of My mercy are drawn by means of one vessel only, and that is — trust. The more a soul trusts, the more it will receive.”

Jesus gave St. Faustina one of the simplest prayers we can use in times of difficulty.

Jesus, I trust in You!
