Dear God, please give me strength when everything seems hopeless. Please give me strength when everything in my life seems to be going wrong.
Please give me the wisdom I need to find ways to solve my problems when I am going through a rough time in life and see the light when I feel like my entire world is wrapped in darkness.
Please give me the strength I need to get up and move forward when life knocks me down, to try harder to achieve my goals after every failure, and to love again wholeheartedly after every heartbreak.
Please give me the wisdom I need to see the hidden motives of those who pretend that they truly care about me so that I can cut them out of my life and move on in peace.
I know that You’d never make me deal with problems and pains I’m not able to overcome, but I’m not sure how many more battles I’ll be able to fight. I don’t know how much more pain I can endure. Because I am tired.
I am tired of fighting battles. I am tired of trying to be strong. I am tired of hoping that my problems and pains will soon go away.
I have to be honest and say that there are times when I want to give up and let life destroy me.
And no! I’m not asking You to make my worries, issues, and pains go away since I know that they’re the tools I need to become stronger, wiser, and more resilient.
I’m not asking You to make my life feel effortless since I know that if my life was easy, I’d never be able to become who I am meant to be.
All I am asking You is to give me strength since I’m very tired. I feel weak and I can’t tell how much more I can take.
I am also asking You to give me the wisdom I need to understand my struggles. Give me the strength I need to accept them and see them as valuable lessons.
Give me the strength I need to accept that I may not be the happiest person in the world, but that I have many things in life to be grateful for.
Give me the strength I need to accept that every problem and pain I face in life don’t make me weak. They actually make me stronger and wiser.
Give me the strength and courage I need to resist every temptation, face every challenge, and endure every pain that may cross my path.
And finally, please give me the wisdom and strength I need to believe that things won’t seem hopeless forever. That there is really light at the end of the tunnel. And that I’ll manage to create the life I want.
