Between God and Me
Get brutally honest with God with the questions below. These questions are great to respond to in a journal. Or use them as a way to get you focused during a time of prayer and reflection. See how what you are going through is really no different than what happened during Jesus' times.
Everything is falling apart.
When you feel like Humpty Dumpty after the wall, describe every broken piece of your life to God, who is there with you. Then ask God to show you just one first step in putting things back together. The answer will come, maybe from a wise grown-up, or maybe in the thoughts God gives you. One step at a time.
More to get you thinking
Does a little tiny sin count?
We need forgiveness for little white lies and small careless remarks as much as we do for bigger stuff. At least once a day, admit to God the things that have come between you, from back-talking Mom to gossiping. From there, God helps you put it all behind you and go on growing.
I hope things are going to get better.
Our best hopes and dreams come from God, so who better to talk them over with? This kind of prayer is not about begging for things to come true. It's about simply putting your longings out there so you and God can look at them together. The answer may come as a peaceful knowing that hope makes sense.
I don't even know what to pray about.
You don't always have to be the one to start the conversation with God. He knows what you two need to talk about, so ask him to show you what that is. Get quiet and listen. Thoughts about your problems and worries may crowd in. Pay attention, because those may be God's topics for your focused time together.
