Forgive me for being selfish, but I am lost. I know full well there are so many with very serious problems. I am, though, so tired of worry and a constant anxious feeling — one I know has followed me my entire life, even as a child. Please help me, God — show me how to cope with these stresses; show what will make me happy.
How to be truly happy; to stop awful thoughts of others and myself; and, most importantly, to remember first those that are truly suffering, not just me.
By this prayer, I’m also praying for those who are lonely, depressed, hungry, homeless and helpless. Please, please help me.
