Prayer to find hope again

by A Lost Soul

I am getting old and have found myself at the bottom of my life. As a child I was told I would never amount to anything by my parents. I am now living what she foretold. It is a daily walk in darkness that I have battled most of my life and seems like it has come to a final fruition.


I pray for the courage to end this waisted life. My time is coming to a close. My children have been taken from me through divorce. I was a good father and faithful husband and tried to live a holy life. After a disability my career ended, my marriage and my home are gone.

After many years of plenty and what I thought was a family for life, it's all over. Now I struggle to just stay alive. I am so displaced. My identity is obscured by inner darkness, and I have so little motivation to go on.

Dear Lord have mercy on this sinner. I don't know what to pray for any more. Too many wrong choices. Have Mercy Jesus.

Prayer to Find Hope Again to The Lost Soul
by: Library Late Fees

Please, please continue to pray each and every day. If you do not have a church, find one. Join a group through your church and join a support group too. Each person has a soul. The person and the soul belong to God. You are valuable in God's eyes. There are still good people in this world who DO care. Do NOT give up.
From the Bible, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
Here is a poem by Emily Dickinson; I don't know if it will help, but it makes me feel better when I am down.
Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words,
And never stops at all,

And sweetest in the gale is heard;
And sore must be the storm
That could abash the little bird
That kept so many warm.

I've heard it in the chillest land
And on the strangest sea;
Yet, never, in extremity,
It asked a crumb of me.
Mine....H O P E His omnipotent power edifies, exonerates, empowers, exhilarates, enraptures, emends.....!!!
