When it’s hard to pray

I pray every day, it is greatly comforting to me to be able to pour out my emotions and thoughts to a greater being who listens and soothes me. But there are days where I am so tired that I find myself feeling unable to find the words I’d like to use. I feel unable to pray because I don’t know what to say.

The thing is, those are the days when I think that my prayers are listened to the most, the days that I can’t pray “properly” because my heart, body, and soul are weighed down. I like to think that God can read the words on my heart, even when I don’t know what to say.

Psalms 34 has some comforting words for those of us who are struggling emotionally, battling through trials with our mental health, and experiencing poor physical health.  “The eyes of God are on the righteous, And His ears listen to their cry for help.  They cried out, and God heard; He rescued them from all their distresses. God is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit.”

If you are struggling today too, I hope those words being your comfort!

  1. I would just like to say I have read all of your blogs today.. at least the recent ones. And I relate to almost every single one of them. Keep on writing and reaching out. It really helps to read someone that is going through the same stuff. And it is also hard to start a family and try to “break the chain” and be better than what you were taught and how you were treated.

      1. It is terrifying. I just posted a writing about motherhood. Speaking of that! My son has been my saving grace. I vow to not be my mother. It’s hard. And I know no other mother that struggles.
