And the wise men came into the house, they saw the young child with Mary, his mother. And they fell down and worshiped him. They presented to him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. -Matthew 2:11

Dear Jesus, these wise men knew that you were the God who had come to earth to solve all of our problems. They didn't know how you would die and rise again. But they trusted you as a person. I don't know how you will solve all of my problems either. But I trust you as a person and I give you my gifts and worship just like they did. Thank you for the wisdom to recognize you for who you are and to let go of the details. If there is anything you want me to do to help myself or someone else and I am missing it, please show me what to do.  reveal the path to me the way you did to those wise men.  Amen

We trust a person not just a doctrine or a revealed plan.
