Dear God, I awaken from troubled dreams. I am agitated and frightened as I begin the day. In fear, I look for ways to turn this into resentment and anger, for it is more easily endured to be angry than afraid.
Lord, let me try love. Let me meet fear, anger, frustration, despondency, with love. Let me actively direct loving thought towards those who loom as obstacles in my life. Fill me, Lord, with the ability to do this. I am so depleted, I need you. Rescue me from my own attitudes, replace them with healing love.
