To Him I Pray

What can you do when you start to lose hope? When you feel like your prayers have not been answered? How do you prepare yourself for a battle you are too scared to face?

How do I continue to be the strong person I am supposed to be when I feel so defeated and weak?

Truth is, I’m terrified.


Dear Lord Jesus,

Tomorrow is the start of a very scary path. I’m not entirely sure how I’m supposed to handle this. I know I have to be strong. I am terrified. I’m scared of what the outcome might be. I’m scared that I won’t make the right decisions. I’m scared of the unknown. I pray that you are in there with me providing strength. I pray that you are in there with me providing courage to ask and say what I want. I am trying to do the right thing – the right thing for my daughter. But I am terrified. Did I fight hard enough to prevent this from happening? Did I voice myself loud enough so that people can hear me? Will I be letting my daughter down? Will odds be against me? Will I lose everything? I’m scared. I know I shouldn’t be. I am trying my hardest to get myself together and walk forward in your light and guidance. Please be with me tomorrow and shield me from anything that is not good for me and my daughter. Please protect us from those who wish to harm us and that you know will not benefit us.

In Jesus’ Name,
