Prayer of the Disappointed

“Lord, help me to appreciate today’s blessings, both new and old.  Help me to not be so surprised and so frustrated about the upcoming problems and disappointments that will come my way today.  And help me to know that You are with me, You are good, and You are in control, especially when my day seems nothing but a lousy mess.”

I'm a husband, father, teacher. I'm doing my best, wishing I could do better, and trying to help others to effectively lead kids through early adolescence.

  1. Be At Peace
    Do not look forward in fear to the changes in life;
    rather, look to them with full hope that as they arise,
    God, whose very own you are,
    will lead you safely through all things;
    and when you cannot stand it,
    God will carry you in His arms.
    Do not fear what may happen tomorrow;
    the same understanding Father who cares for
    you today will take care of you then and every day.
    He will either shield you from suffering
    or will give you unfailing strength to bear it.
    Be at peace,
    and put aside all anxious thoughts and imaginations.
    St. Francis DeSales
