Dear God, life seems more complicated than I thought it would be. At times, I just don’t understand why people have to suffer. Truly, it doesn’t seem fair and I don’t understand why you don’t take charge and change things to make them right. I would do it if I were you; I would protect the innocent, especially the children. I would feed the hungry and clothe the naked if I were you.
I know Jesus asked us to do these things, but I don’t want that responsibility. It scares me. So I need your help. Would you give me the
courage to help someone else? Would you give me the courage to let go of pride and fear and be the kind of person that I wish other people were? Would you help me let go of my resentment because life is not always fair, so I can get on with living? I do need your help. Amen.
