Prayer for Stressful Times

Karin Fishbook

rubber band ball 2 TSF 87656427Like an elastic band, I am
stretched over packages
of burdens and responsibilities.
Any day now, the tensions of daily life
could make me snap.
Untwist the stresses of my day,
unknot the chaos with in me,
untangle the jumbled strings of hurt.
Lord, unfold your ways for me
and make my paths straight. Amen.


When the pressure’s rising, may God give you peace.
