Prayer For Someone In Distress
Lord, do not waste one scintilla of this suffering. Make some good come out of it for me (a change in life direction, a deepening of faith and love, a protection from other adversity), for others (a zeal for your kingdom, a desire to help others, an empathy with those in need, and an eagerness to serve the kingdom), for the culture, and for the community. Lord, please optimize the good that can come from this suffering.
Behold me, my beloved Jesus,
weighed down under the burden of my trials and sufferings,
I cast myself at Your feet,
that You may renew my strength and my courage,
while I rest here in Your Presence.
Permit me to lay down my cross in Your Sacred Heart,
for only Your infinite goodness can sustain me;
only Your love can help me bear my cross;
only Your powerful hand can lighten its weight.
O Divine King, Jesus,
whose heart is so compassionate to the afflicted,
I wish to live in You;
suffer and die in You.
During my life be to me my model and my support;
At the hour of my death,
be my hope and my refuge.
Heal my broken heart, My Lord, Heal my broken soul,
I feel torn apart, My Lord, And You can make me whole.
Take me in Your arms, My Lord, And hold me to Your breast,
I am oh-so weary, Lord, And You can give me rest.
Wipe away my tears, My Lord, With gentle hands of love,
Quiet down my fears, My Lord, With graces from above.
Stay with me awhile, My Lord, For I feel all alone,
I'm like a little child, My Lord, With You I feel at home.
Help me bear this cross, My Lord, Help me with this pain,
Unite me with Your Cross, My Lord, And I'll be strong again.
Tell me how to cope, My Lord, Let me hear Your voice,
Encourage me with hope, My Lord, Your way, my only choice.
Set me on my feet, My Lord, And stay here by my side,
Until I feel Your strength, My Lord, To walk in steady stride.
Nudge me on my way, My Lord, But stay not far behind,
Until I reach that day, My Lord, With renewed peace of mind.
And on that day, I will say: My broken heart is healed, My Lord,
And so's my broken soul, You are all I need, My Lord, And once again, I'm whole.
Be gracious to me, Lord, because I am in distress;
my eyes are worn out from frustration my whole being as well.
Indeed, my life is consumed with grief and my years with groaning;
my strength has failed because of my iniquity, and my bones waste away.
But I trust in you, Lord; I say, You are my God.
I shall walk through dark valleys, I fear no harm for you are at my side. Your rod and staff shall give me courage, No evil shall befall me, No weakness in my stride.
God wills not my foot to slip Or my guardian sleep, He guides me from all evil,
The Lord is my guardian; The Lord the shade I keep, By day the sun cannot harm me Or the moon by night.
For the Lord said, "Do not let your hearts be troubled, Have faith in God and also in me. In my Father's house There are many dwelling places. If there were not, Would I have told you That I am going to prepare A place for you?
And if I go And prepare a place for you, I will come back again And take you to myself, So that where I am You also may be."
If the Lord is with us, Who can be against us?
My Lord, please dont ignore my prayers for i am your poor servent in so much need and distress. God let this be miracle my Lord saviour. Please pray for me. only a miracle can get me out of this. In your name my Lord, i trust and blieve and take refuge in. Amen
Give me the strength, merciful God, to pass through my pain, and let it transform my soul. Teach me to express my grief honestly, to cry, and to weather the onslaught of emotions while trusting in you.
Merciful God, I am confused, lonely, and sad. I do not feel like talking with people. Emotions drain my strength, leaving me numb and hopeless. Tears well up at unexpected times. What am I to do, O God? I have no control. Give me the strength to bear these bitter tears.
