If it be Thy Will
"A Prayer for the recovery of a sick person: ...we implore thy mercy, that ... he may be restored, if it be thy gracious will, to health of body and mind, and give thanks to thee...; through Jesus Christ our Lord."
I really believe in "if it be thy will." It is not a lack of faith, as some claim, to trust in Your will, to pray that Your will be done--in whatever we are praying for. In fact, I think that due to our humanity, our tendency to trust in ourselves, that it takes more faith to trust in You (though of course it shouldn't, but we really don't see You as You are) than in our own wishes and ideas of what is best.
