PrayerHelp me talk myself out of:
Feeling depressed because nobody is there:
Help me to confront:
I feel threatened
By what someone did.
I feel stressed
By what I failed to do.
I feel anxious
By what I might do wrong.
I feel terribly terribly alone.
Help me muster strength:
Open up a bit of vulnerability
And share my feelings.
And reach out to someone.
Help me break free of paralysis:
over fear of losing what I have.
over failures in spite of best efforts.
over the apparent lack of meaning:
in my work.
in my life.
Help me make new habits:
strength and sensitivity.
confidence and humility.
vulnerability and self control.
rejection and find better matches.
positive comments and accept them.
negative comments and act on them with balance.
Live for myself with concern for others.
Help me make a life I love.
