Dear God, please grant me the strength that I cannot seem to find on my own. I need strength to carry on when all I want to do is give up, to surrender to the darkness surrounding me. It’s enveloping me and I’ve lost my will. I’ve lost smiles to tears. My heart is so heavy Lord. Like a crushing weight, that I cannot breathe under. All I feel is sadness and pain. I feel so helpless, I can’t make these thoughts and feelings go away. I feel so alone and so unloved. Everything in my life is a mess, and there’s nobody I can turn to. Nobody in my life understands how or what I feel. The ones who are supposed to care for me are the ones who drive me deeper into darkness with their words and actions. I know now that I’m completely alone and I’m weak. I’m broken inside. God please help me find some shred of hope, some strength, a sign…. anything. My burdens seem too heavy to bare.
