Prayer for Anxious Times

Dear God who understands all of my feelings,
you know my fears – loss of health, loss of
loved ones, loss of shelter, food – Lord, so
many fears!
You know what makes me sad and lonely:
my feeling isolated and alone, like I am in
a prison that I cannot get out of, unable to
see family and friends.
You know my anger and frustration at the
endlessness of each day, the boredom of
my life right now.
You know and accept me – all of me.
You love me as I am.
I am your beloved child.
Hold me when I am anxious,
comfort me when I am sad,
listen to my complaints,
and help me find joy in my ordinary days.
I ask these things in the name of my
Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
