Crying can sometimes be good, but we know that it isn’t always… so many times we have a lump in our throat that doesn’t seem to go away, the world gets a little gray and everything seems worse than it really is. But lately I’ve learned something that has helped me a lot, and I believe it can help you too: when the world seems bad, be thankful for the good things.
Once, when I was very young, my father taught me to look out the window. That is, to look out the window and see what was beautiful through it. Our eyes are sometimes so used to looking at everything in a negative way that we simply forget to look for what is good and brings peace.
So I want to pray together with you for joy and that our window of the soul, the eyes, will be clean to look for what is good. I leave here a passage especially for you today:
For your anger lasts only a moment; in your favor is life. Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.Psalms 30:5
Remember that you don’t have to repeat the prayer exactly as I’m going to leave it here, because each one of us has a specific way of communicating with the Lord. But if you want to accompany me, it will be a pleasure, feel free to speak it in your own way.
Beloved God, I thank you for the good things, my family, job, home, friends, health, for your care and love, for even in my failure to call me son/daughter, how I love you, my Lord. I recognize that I deserve nothing, so I thank you for your provision.
You know Father, I have been crying a lot lately, I am sensitive to simple situations and I don’t like to be this way, I want to see the good side of everything, so I come to you, asking you to show me what is your will for me and help me to see the good side of every situation.
I know that everything that happens is your permission and everything that doesn’t happen as well, because you see beyond what my human eyes can see and I always want to be sure of that. I pray to the Holy Spirit to help me by giving me discernment about each situation and bringing to God what I cannot express in words.
In this way I ask my loving Father to wipe away my tears. My God, Yours is the power, the glory and the honor forever. It is in the name of Jesus that I pray, give thanks and ask that my words may reach the Lord like a sweet perfume!
Prayer of a mere servant of God
God bless you!
