Bad news prayer

Yesterday bad news got translated into appalling news ..please bear with me...

Ted Loder comes to the rescue again.

How shall I pray?

Are tears prayers Lord?

Are scream prayers,

Or groans, or sighs or curses?

Lord help me!

Help me to trust that you do accept me as I am

That I may be done with self condemnation

And self pity.

And accept myself.

Help me to accept you as you are Lord,

Mysterious, hidden, strange, unknowable.

And yet to trust

That your madness is wiser than my timid, self seeking sanities

And that nothing you've ever done

Has really been possible,

So I may dare to be a little mad too!


  1. Prayers and hugs- and thank you for this lovely prayer.
