The Prayer of Faith

God is my help in every need;
God does my every hunger feed;
God walks beside me, guides my way
Through every moment of this day.

I now am wise, I now am true,
Patient and kind, and loving, too;
All things I am, can do, and be,
Through Christ the Truth, that is in me.

God is my health, I can't be sick;
God is my strength, unfailing, quick;
God is my all, I know no fear,
Since God and Love and Truth are here.

Beloved Prayer

More Kohaus wrote to Myrtle Fillmore, cofounder of Unity, in 1914 to share her gratitude that this poem had been shared in Wee Wisdom®, the Unity monthly magazine for children, and that she was “pleased the children are being helped by the simple lines.” Its 1914 publication was its second appearance in Wee Wisdom after first appearing in the August 1898 issue.

Later, the poem was included in Unity Song Selections, the 1941 Unity hymnal. It remains popular today, perhaps the most recited (and beloved) prayer by Unity congregations and members after only James Dillet Freeman’s “Prayer for Protection.”
