Prayer of the Day - When I'm Feeling Desperate

Dear Lord of my life,
I come to You when I'm flailing about.  I come to You when I'm drowning.  I come to You when thick fog of discouragement has clouded my view.  You are my stronghold.  You are my lifeboat.  You are the light to my situations, surroundings, and pathway.  I am able to press on in You.  I can press on as I press into You.  I tenderly linger in Your courts today as I go about my tasks.  Help me to comfort and guide my children today when they need it of me, instead of them becoming the recipients of my soul down-trodden.  Help me to recognize their similarities to me in their tenderness.  Give me Your strength to walk in the perspective that my children may need similar from me today what I find myself needing from You.  You are my God, and in You I place my trust!  David encouraged himself in the Lord.  Teach me to do the same!  In Jesus' name, Amen!
