Prayer that I may no longer feel pain

While it isn’t physical pain I feel it is still a pain that can hurt.

I’m 37 and going through yet another difficult time with a woman. She’s a close friend of mine who has somehow gotten past all of the defenses I put up to protect myself from wanting to date or be in a relationship. I never intended nor wanted these feelings to come up again as it had been nearly 5 years since I last had a relationship. I’ve never really had much success in dating. I wanted to be clear and away from it all and just focus on life itself. The past year we have become rather close and chummy with each other and helped each other through some very difficult times. The last couple of months I have felt these feelings grow and have fought to keep them hidden from not only her but myself as well. Well, I slipped up and told her how I felt about her. She said she loves me as a friend but never looked at nor wanted me for anything other then friendship. The past month I have felt lower then low. I’ve felt as though I had maybe been given a blessing from God because this woman had gotten through some very tough defenses. Now I see it simply as yet another way to feel pain, misery and sadness.

I simply don’t want to feel anything along the lines of love for her or any woman. I understand that’s not normal but after nearly 2 decades of trying and failing I can’t go on anymore. Please pray that my troubled mind can be set at peace and that I no longer have these feelings or desires that lead me down a path I’ve already been down and failed in before

Praying for you so your mind and be at peace.
Our Father, Who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

Amen.

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning is now, and ever shall be, world without end.

Amen.

Praying for you!

Praying for you.

Try not to be so hard on yourself, open your heart to the possibility of what could become,
This lady may be much like yourself, just putting the toe in the water,
Life with a mate can be extremly rewarding, they become at one with yourself,
Perhaps she is a person of faith,

Holy Michael the Archangel defend us in the day of battle.
Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,
and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host,
by the Power of God,
thrust down to hell satan and all the wicked spirits,
who wander through the world for the ruin of souls.
Amen.

Remember, O most loving Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession and was left forsaken. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To you I come, before you I stand, a sorrowful sinner. Despise not my words, O Mother of the Word, but in your mercy, hear and answer me.
Amen

I don’t know that I can pray that you’ll no longer feel pain, because pain has its place in our lives and can be redemptive. And I think if you block off the negative emotions, you also block off the positive. Inability to feel pain will also block your ability to feel joy and I wouldn’t wish that on anyone.

But I will pray for the Lord’s peace to be with you, and that you should fee His divine comfort.

**O My Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of Hell and lead all souls to Heaven, especially those who are in most need of Thy mercy.
Amen.

**Psalm 31
**
In you, O LORD, I take refuge.
Let me never be put to shame.
In your justice, set me free;
incline your ear to me, and speedily rescue me.

Be a rock of refuge for me,
a mighty stronghold to save me.
For you are my rock, my stronghold!
Lead me, guide me, for the sake of your name.
Release me from the snare they have hidden,
for you indeed are my refuge.

Into your hands I commend my spirit.
You will redeem me, O LORD, O faithful God.

You detest those who serve empty idols.
As for me, I trust in the LORD.

Let me be glad and rejoice in your mercy,
for you who have seen my affliction
and taken heed of my soul’s distress,
have not left me in the hands of the enemy,
but set my feet at large.

Have mercy on me, O LORD,
for I am in distress.
My eyes are wasted with grief,
my soul and my body.

For my life is spent with sorrow,
and my years with sighs.
Affliction has broken down my strength,
and my bones waste away.

Because of all my foes
I have become a reproach,
an object of scorn to my neighbors
and of fear to my friends.

Those who see me in the street
flee from me.
I am forgotten, like someone dead,
and have become like a broken vessel.
I have heard the slander of the crowd;
terror all around me,
as they plot together against me,
as they plan to take my life.

But as for me, I trust in you, O LORD;
I say, “You are my God.
My lot is in your hands, deliver me
from the hands of my enemies
and those who pursue me.
Let your face shine on your servant.
Save me in your merciful love.
Let me not be put to shame, O LORD,
for I call on you;
let the wicked be shamed!
Let them be silenced in the grave!
Let lying lips be stilled,
that speak haughtily against the just man
with pride and contempt.”

How great is the goodness, LORD,
that you keep for those who fear you,
that you show to those who trust you
in the sight of the children of men.

You hide them in the shelter of your presence,
secure from human scheming;
you keep them safe within your tent
from disputing tongues.
Blest be the LORD for he has wondrously shown me
his merciful love in a fortified city!

“I am far removed from your sight,”
I said in my alarm.
Yet you heard the voice of my plea
when I cried to you for help.

Love the LORD, all you his saints.
The LORD guards the faithful.
But the LORD will repay to the full
the one who acts with pride.
Be strong, let your heart take courage,
all who hope in the LORD.

Prayers for the healing of your heart from this pain. Look full into Christ’s face as He loves beyond our pains…He can give you a peace that passes ALL understanding!

St. Thérèse of Liseux Prayer From “Story of A Soul”

May today there be peace within.
May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.
May you use those gifts that you have received,
and pass on the love that has been given to you.
May you be content knowing you are a child of God.
Let this presence settle into your bones,
and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise, and love.
It is there for each and every one of us.

Amen. †

Lord, thank you that you are with me right now.
Your love surpasses all fear.
I give you the anxiety I feel.
I surrender all my worries to you.
Clear my mind;
Calm my heart;
Still my Spirit;

always glorify you in everything
I write, speak and do.

Amen. †
