Help me…

A moment of prayer... 

“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. Originally prayed 1/3/2012, thirteen days after the death of her son.)

Here I am, Lord.

Thank You for loving me and being patient with me, especially when I don't feel grateful. Feelings of guilt and anger dance around in my head.

I desperately need Your help. I feel overwhelmed by the tasks of the day. Can't there just be some stillness and quiet? Instead there is noise all around me; I feel pressure to entertain those who are here to comfort me. Lord, I know this is not what they desire... ugh. Please, I pray my heart can instead just be focused on the blessings You have given me.

Please help me, Lord, I feel like I'm drowning in my own sorrow; it is difficult to breathe at times.

Help me to have enough "still and quiet" to know that You are God. Help me to not try and fill this void in my heart with anything unhealthy. May I grieve the way You have designed me to grieve - and what is that way? It is you. Help me to see and experience Your presence.

Help me to not demean or shut out those who are coming alongside me in my grief. Help me to receive the answers You provide and be content with those you do not. Help me to cry when it's time to cry and exhibit strength when necessary. Help me make choices today that when I look back on this season of life, I will remember it as a time of tears but also as a time of growth and spiritual awakening. May this time not be wasted...

Jesus, please help me.




Here I am, Lord.
