Good Days…Bad Days With Maureen Pratt

A Prayer for the Restless Spirit

For all of you whose spirit is restless and waiting…

 

Lord, I’ve prayed for a cure, but none has come. I’ve prayed for understanding of “why,” and haven’t received that, either. I sit, stand, and wait, Lord, for your wisdom and word, but O, Lord, my spirit is restless.

Inside of me is worry, and it is growing stronger. Disappointment, and it festers. My courage is flagging. My patience is falling away. And, even more, my spirit is restless.

So, Father in Heaven, instead of praying more for a cure or understanding or a release from pain, I turn to you with another supplication: Please, Lord, be with me and help me. Help me in my frustration and disappointment. Help me in my fragility.

And, most of all, Lord, help me in my restlessness so that I may be still and quiet and truly listen and truly hear. For I love you, Lord, with all my heart. And my restless spirit does, too.

Maureen
