How do we feel? (a prayer)

God, my sister says she is tapped out of feelings to day. No rage, no sorrow, just empty.

I’m praying for her today.

My black colleague says she’s been here before, working when you should be able to rest and restore. Grieving with now where to put it. She has experience, and she doesn’t know how it’s going to end.

Help us to take some of the burden and to work on changing things today.

Someone I know has been having anxiety attacks, not once or twice, but multilple times a day. Between the politcis, the suffering and the pandemic, he is not sure how to treat the stress-o-phere that we live today.

Help us to find ways to change our stress-o-phere.

God I don’t know how I feel today–one minute I’m ok, the next I’m stressing, the next I’m depressed, then I’m anxious.

God help me with what I need, because I don’t know today.

All I can do to process is write, and pray, and scroll and write some more. I don’t know how I feel, but I know what I’m doing.

Help us God, we are feeling surrounded and beseiged by our enemies, like all the Psalms say. We are stuck and don’t know where to go.

All we can say is you are God.

You are God, please be our God we pray.
