Prayer – I’m Tired!

Oh, God…I’m exhausted!
I am so tired it hurts to think,
My bones have turned to lead.
My eyes stay open only out of need.

I am constantly doing,
but the demands only grow.
I am barely accomplishing all that I need to,
leaving so much undone.

I can’t think.
Making mistakes.
Forgetting.
Crashing into bed,
but then not really sleeping.

God, Help!
I’m drowning,
sinking,
falling behind.
I’ve lost sight of life,
hidden under the lists and needs.
Help me find a way out.
Help me find a better path.
For I don’t have energy to figure it out.

You are the Lord of Peace,
the Lord of Patience,
the Lord of Quiet Places.
Help me find you in all this running.
Help me stop and reclaim
my life
my self
and your love.
Amen.

About SFriant

I live to walk with others on their journeys - because everyone needs to know that they are loved, that they matter, and that they are doing amazing things. I'm a lot like our two kids: obsessed with learning, and constantly creating.
