"no confidence whatever in my own strength"

O Lord, I do not wish to be preoccupied with my fears nor be discouraged at my weakness.  On the contrary, I wish to trust in Your mercy, and to have no confidence whatever in my own strength, convinced that my weakness comes from depending on myself.  ~St. Teresa of Avila

On the day when I shall fear,
I will trust in you,
in God, whose word I praise.
In God I trust; I shall not fear.
~Psalm 56(55):4-5
