Heavenly Father, protector of my soul, help me now! I cling to You for dear life! I’m hiding out under Your protection until the storm blows over. I call out to You, gracious God who holds me together and keeps me sane –
Give me strength!
Give me patience!
Give me poise!
I’m a wreck! I want to shut my children in the garage and run away from their constant noise and whining. Those voices that usually bring me such joy are like rusty nails on a chalkboard right now.
Give me peace.
Give me patience.
Remind me of the joy they bring; give me compassion for their plight. Remind me of Your patient love for me when I cannot be content. Cool my jets, God – I need to be the adult in this situation. You deliver generous love; You pour Your Spirit freely on all who ask for it. “All who ask shall receive,” You make good on Your Word.
Let Your sun shine on us today, O God. We will sing out Your praises as we find peace in You.
