I don’t ask for prayers for myself very often, but I am now.
My name is Sarah, and I am a 17 year old junior in high school. Lately I’ve been feeling this nagging depression (I am not in the least bit suicidal, just so you know). There are periods throughout the day (especially when I am alone to my thoughts) when I am saddened and I feel a hole in my heart that seems to never fill.
For a while, I was unsure of where these feelings were coming from. I think I have pinpointed them. Please pray not only for myself, but also for a good friend of mine, who we’ll call “Anthony”. Though he never felt the same, I think I will always love him, at least a little, and hold a special place for him in my heart. I hope and pray he ends up happy, and with the lucky girl meant for him.
What I need is prayers to help me trust the Lord, because that is probably the area I struggle with the most in my faith. I…find it hard to discern my vocation…I am afraid that I will make the wrong choice and hurt people in the process. Please pray that I will have the strength to trust God and accept whatever He has in store for me…and that I will also have the patience to wait for Him to reveal it whenever He sees fit.
Thank you for taking the time to read, and to pray…it’s much appreciated.
