But how can we pray when we can't even articulate what we need? How do we ask for help when we aren't even sure what help we seek? What request can we make of the One who knows everything about the problem when we have no clue about how to pursue a solution?
I'm going with this:
Lord, today I pray for the one who will probably be furious to read this post. I call out to you, Father, for the wisdom to know what to say and what to do. Please enter into the heart of the one for whom my heart aches and remind them that they are your precious and beloved child and deserve to be treated as such. Help them to seek you and to find the courage to ask the hard questions and make the right decisions. Guide them, comfort them, give them strength. Listen to my heart, Lord. Amen.
