A moment of prayer… This is a prayer of grief.
Sometimes we want to pray, but it is hard to find the words. “A moment of prayer…” posts allow you to borrow a prayer when you have no words of your own.
(Halee Wood journals many of her prayers. This prayer was originally prayed on 5/3/12.)
Father, I hate this fog of grief. I hate that my brain is not functioning the way it use to function before so much loss.
I am so sorry, Lord, for putting my mind and will before Yours so many times. You designed and created my brain, but I have put a lot of my contentment in it functioning the way I want it to function.
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, and the courage to change the things I can.
I don’t know how much “control” I have over my lack of brain function, but help me to fully rely on You for the things that help my brain function as You designed (i.e. sleeping enough, eating right, drinking enough water, exercising, vitamins, etc.). Help me to recognize what I need to do in honor of Your creation.
