The Lord has been opening up my prayer life in unexpected ways. Before, I was quite lazy with prayer but I now crave prayer time and consider it my spiritual breath. One thing that seems to be happening is a far greater empathy for the sufferings of other souls. I see so many petitions here and feel overwhelmed with sorrow for them. I try to offer everyone on this site collectively. But a i read through the intentions here I seem to have my breath taken away again and again by what my brother and sisters in Christ are going through. God is filling me with unspeakable joy but at the same time, I feel I cannot keep up with everyone’s needs. I feel I am bearing their sorrow with them, and there is an awful lot of sorrow.
Has anyone else felt this way?
