Early in my own recovery efforts I found a book that helped me pray when I had no breath for it: Rooted In God’s Love – Meditations on Biblical Texts for People in Recovery, by Dale and Juanita Ryan.
One of my favorite prayers is found on page 19, I share it with you with prayers that your journey provides you with nourishment and healing…
Nourish me, Lord.
Nourish me with your love.
Calm the frantic feelings within me.
Grow a sense of security within me.
I want to be able to sit quietly.
Like a weaned child.
Secure in your love.
And the passage of scripture associated with this inspired prayer?
I have stilled and quieted my soul;
Like a weaned child with its mother,
Like a weaned child is
My soul within me.
