Lord, I pray that ________ will not be cursed by putting her (his) trust in mere humans, relying on human strength and turning her (his) heart away from the Lord. She (He) would be like stunted shrubs in the desert, with no hope for the future. But bless ________ for trusting in you, Lord, and making You her (his) hope and confidence. She (He) will be like a tree planted along a riverbank with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit.
