Dear Lord, do not leave me alone for sometimes I feel like letting go. The fear and the pain that engulfs me is a bit too much, and I feel that I do not have the strength to push through on my own.
Lord Jesus, You have assured us that when we turn to You, You will always hear our prayers. I know that I am undergoing this because of a sin I have committed or for preparation for higher service to You. Therefore Lord God, grant me the strength that I need today, and may Your will be done in my life.
