Feelings are mysterious They surround us like a wall And press down on us like the heat Feelings are visible. We see the symptoms, we learn the causes What about the feelings that are beyond our control? They are like ropes tying us down Sting us like the cold. Sometimes we don’t know why we feel this way Or how. It just hits us like a gust of wind. We fall back down when we try to stand up. It hurts It’s uncomfortable This is why we pray. We ask God for help We don’t understand why we feel this way. Prayer gives us peace It gives us hope. It casts our anxieties away. It lifts that weight off our shoulders. It snuggles us like a warm blanket. It provides protection.
