A BIPOLAR’S PRAYERS

by OKLAHOMAROSE as posted at



A MANIC’S PRAYER by OklahomaRose


Dear Heavenly Father;
I pray that you will be with me as I start this day
I am bouncing off the walls
I cannot concentrate long enough to complete a single thought
I become angry out of the blue
Exploding emotions
Surprising me and my loved ones too
I want to do so many things and I have all of this energy
But I cannot stay with any one thing for long
I talk endlessly and so fast that no one can keep up with me
All of these thoughts flash in my mind like a lighting storm
Striking
Then they are gone
My loved ones are concerned but do not understand
Lord place your hand upon me and still this rushing river inside
Surround me with your angels so that I may feel their peace
Help me and the ones I love to understand this illness
Help me find a way to manage this please
Lord as I lay down to sleep tonight
Hold me gently in your loving arms so I may rest

Amen




A DEPRESSIVES PRAYER by OklahomaRose


Dear Heavenly Father;
I pray that you will be with me as I try to start this day
I hardly have the energy to get out of this bed
I don’t want to do anything at all
There are mouths to feed, dishes to wash, laundry pilling up to the ceiling
Please help me do some of the days chores
I should go to work but I am calling in – again
I keep crying off and on, not really knowing why
I hate myself and my life
I wish for a way out of this pain
Lord stay close beside me today
I really need your help to make it through
Let me feel your warm presence that I may feel warm too
Surround me with your angels so that I will be safe
Even from myself
Show me the way out of this lonely darkness
Help me and the ones I love to understand this illness
Help me find a way to manage it and find peace
I need to know there a better days to come

Amen
