Tuesday Prayer for 9/27/16: Anger

Inspired by Psalm 137

Dear God:

Sometimes it wells up…
Tears and bitterness and
Pain. Pain that wishes for more
Pain but not of my own; other’s pain.

My jaw clenches and my shoulders
Ache and my hands become fists as
I feel something threatening to
Flood over me that
Threatens to
Flood the world.

And you understand floods…


Save us all from these floods...

Amen.
