Prayer

Self-pity

Depression haunts my days (Job 30:16; NLT).

Leave me alone to weep (Isaiah 22:4; NLT).

A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength (Proverbs 17:22; NLT).


Father,
During contemplation,
May I absorb
Enough of your love and strength
To take me through the day ahead
Without self-pity.

In Jesus’ name,
Amen.
