Dear Lord, I feel like I’m being held hostage by stress right now. I feel numb, and nothing makes sense to me. Father, your word says that we should be anxious for nothing but by prayer and supplication we should present our requests to you. Lord, I present these feelings of pain and disappointment to you. Purify me with the blood of your Son, Jesus. Fill my heart with peace that I may be able to focus on what you called me to do and not what has happened. In Jesus’ name, I believe and pray, Amen.
