Today… today… today… today i cannot pray.

my heart is troubled, my mind is cluttered, my stomach is sick.
today is a day like others before, but then again, not.
today i am hurting.

prayer is hard when you are in a place of turmoil. people say that prayer is most powerful when coming from anguish, and although i might agree with that, i don’t always feel it.
feelings get in the way of true prayer. feelings are a gift from God, and yet sometimes, they feel a curse. they cloud our judgment, our mind, our bodies, our souls. they block communication, they block truth. today, my feelings cloud my communication, block truth, and cause me to fall…

to the One…

Lord, hear my prayer…

“I call on You, oh God, for you will answer me;
give ear to me and hear my prayer. Show the wonder of Your great love,
You who save by Your right hand those who take refuge in You from their foes.”

Spirit, help me in my weakness.
I do not know what to pray for, but You
intercede for me with groans that words cannot express.
Search my heart,
You who knows the mind of the Spirit,
intercede for me
with God’s perfect will.

Today i pray for those who are hurting, those who are broken, those beyond tears. i pray for those who are aching, those who have no one to turn to. i pray that they would turn to the One who can lift them up, cry with them, hold them in their hurt, love them in their despair. i pray for those who are weak and do not feel they can stand, those who are destroyed by the ones they love, those who are defeated, battered, abused, buffeted by the waves of this world. i pray that love washes over you, that new friendships blossom, that you know the Truth no matter what, that you find a place that you are safe. i pray that you become whole and new again and find rest for your soul…

Today i prayed for you…
