Prayer: Where Should I Turn O Lord?

Where should I turn, O Lord, when understanding is far from me and anger is so near to me? Where should I turn when that which should make sense to me no longer does? I seek to know but knowledge is nowhere close, leaving nothing but struggles for me. Despair grips me and desperation draws me close until finally I am overtaken by it all.

I shall turn to You O Lord, and, with You, I shall seek my rest. I shall turn to You O Lord and, with You, I shall trust in the promises You have made to me. Though my burdens may be heavy, I shall rest them at Your feet, leaving them for You to take up for me, knowing where I am weak You are strong, and, in that strength, banish from me the weaker places. I shall turn to You, O Lord, and then I will see Your face smiling back at me as You carry me through all despair in the footprints of Your great love.

Through Your Son, my Savior, Christ Jesus, Amen.
