Dear God Almighty,

I come to you today, asking for your help.  I need your heavenly assistance dealing with major stress and frustration.  I am stressed out because my life is not where I think it should be.   I am disheartened because I let others manipulate my thoughts and feelings.  I am discouraged because I am dealing with illness after illness.  And, I’m frustrated because I feel like I am not good enough.  I know I am capable of great things and that you have a grand purpose for my life, but I have no idea what my calling even is.  I am tired of feeling alone.  I am tired of looking down on myself.  I’ve been unable to shake ungodly soul-ties no matter how hard I’ve tried.  I’m tired of begging for true peace in my life but not seeing any.  I imagine the life that I want to live but it feels so out of reach.
