A Prayer

right now, I find myself turning to God more and more to help me with my many struggles. Between the drama of JAB, my current bout of sickness, the preparation for my new job and just general anxiety I find myself needing to talk to someone, but as I live alone and my friends are busy, I turn to God. I sure do wish I could just send him an email and get a prompt response, but that's not how it works. So tonight I decided to write a little prayer.

Dear God
thank you for the many blessings you have bestowed upon me, my supportive parents and friends. Thank you for allowing me to wake up each day, to feel the sun on my face, and breath clean air. Thank you for taking care of me in the past as I know you will in the future. Please help to make the choices you want me to make, surround myself with people who are kind and good, please help me to manage the stress I am under and to do your will. I know you have closed many doors in my life, and it seem as though right now I am looking for that window, please help me keep the faith to find it. I lift up my joys and my sorrows to you, O Lord. You are the wind beneath my wings. Please help me to bring your light to those around me. I love you and will serve you forever.

Amen
