Thy will be done.
O LORD, I know that the way of man [is] not in himself: [it is] not in man that walketh to direct his steps.–Not as I will, but as thou [wilt].–Surely I have behaved and quieted myself, as a child that is weaned of his mother: my soul [is] even as a weaned child.
We know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what [is] the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to [the will of] God.
Ye know not what ye ask.–He gave them their request; but sent leanness into their soul.–These things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted.
I would have you without carefulness.–Thou wilt keep [him] in perfect peace, [whose] mind [is] stayed [on thee]: because he trusteth in thee.
