A Prayer for When you Feel Helpless

Dear Lord,

Dear Lord . . .

Sometimes we don’t know

where to start—

we feel so helpless.

How do you pray,

dear Lord,

when you feel helpless?

Holy Spirit,

be our helper.

 

Dear Lord,

a lot is happening.

Sometimes we try to shut

out the noise

that comes from the constant

beep and buzz around us—

devices of our own choosing.

(Why do we feel that we need

to know the news

as soon as it happens, especially

when they only give us

bad news?)

 

When you feel helpless,

dear Lord,

because they only send you

bad news;

when you feel helpless,

dear Lord,

because they are butchering

your brothers and sisters

in other lands;

when you feel helpless,

dear Lord,

in the face of unrest;

when you feel helpless,

dear Lord,

because you’re surrounded by lies

and people who say,

“all is well”  in the face of

things that are spiraling down

and they prefer to believe

a lie;

when the future looks gloomy

and you feel helpless . . .

 

Dear Lord,

in all these situations

and so much more

we turn to you,

eternal, unchanging one,

our strong deliverer.

 

We turn to you and say

for what we cannot say,

please help us.

Get Closer to God and Live with Confidence and Peace
