A Prayer for when I'm not Feeling It



God,

Help me believe. Help me believe that you love me, even when I feel like I’m alone.

Help me remember that you hear me, even when I feel separated from you.

Help me understand your forgiveness, even when I feel like the worst sinner.

Help me seek you, even when I feel like hiding away.

Help me look up, even when I feel like the world is dragging me down.

Help me remember that I’m on earth for a reason, even when I feel like life is meaningless. Show me your love.

Show me your beauty.

Show me your glory.

Open my eyes so I can see everything You are. Show me that my feelings cannot be trusted. Help me to rely on you instead of what I feel. Direct my thoughts. Let them seek you instead of pursuing my feelings.

Help me love you, even when I don’t feel like I’m worthy.

Amen.
