I’m nothing

Hello to all readers. Christmas is a time when many of us struggle with depression and suicidal feelings. Today’s prayer is for everyone who has fought hard and heroically just to stay alive over recent days and weeks. Tomorrow’s blog will follow on from today’s, with some answers to the questions this prayer poses.

**************************************

How can I say
I’m nothing,
When you made me?

How can I feel
I’m nothing,
When you care?

How can I hate my life
When you, Lord,
Love me?

How can I long for death
When you
Are here?

******************************
