I often find myself worrying about other people. I want my friends and family to be happy, live comfortable lives, and for everyone to get along.
I know that sounds naive but after everything I have experienced, the hope for peace seems essential.
Sometimes things happen and there is nothing I can do but pray.
I know God hears me.
Do you believe he hears you too?
Here is a prayer for when life feels out of control.
There are things happening
I do not understand.
I feel like there is nothing I can
do to help people in my life.
They are making poor choices
and the consequences are real and painful.
I can only sit back and watch them self-destruct.
I feel powerless.
I feel afraid.
I feel like life is out of control.
But your Word tells me you know everything.
You are the beginning and the end,
the Alpha and Omega.
You are the redeemer and healer,
the One who uses all of life’s chaos
for our good.
I will choose to stand on the Truth and not
circumstances or those of the people around me.
“When I am afraid, I will put my trust in You.” Psalm 56:3
Thank you for your grace and mercy.
In Jesus’ name,
