Let me rest

by K (Glens Falls, NY)

Dear Heavenly Father,

I pray each night that you take me in my sleep so I can finally experience peace in my life and to be able to feel your loving arms around me. I have devoted my life to helping other people, and the price I have had to pay is more than I can bare. I am alone, and although I have a roof over my head, I have not a penny for food, gas, or my basic necessities. Those whom I have wanted to spend the rest of my life with have turned their back against me, and my prayers for that special someone have gone unanswered. You oh Lord know my limitations, sorrows, heartache, and my trials. Why do you give me more than I can take without reprieve? If it be your will to live my life with nothing, then please help me to make the best out of nothing. Help me to be that happy idiot who wants or needs for nothing. I have prayed relentlessly to the point where I know not what to pray for anymore. I am so very tired Lord. Please let me rest.
