A prayer of lament
Prayer Theme: Suffering

Divine God, hear my pain.

I pound my fists in frustration

about what I’m going through.

Why me? Why those I love?

Why this particular suffering?

Embrace me in all my tears,

woundedness, and anger.

Love me through my worry

and disbelief and uncertainty.

Assure me of your constant presence

and complete acceptance.

You know all of who I am.

Thank you for welcoming all of who I am.

Amen.
