Oh Holy Christ, Son of God and King of all humanity, I bring to you my hurts, my fears, my disappointments;
I am filled with worries about my health, about money, about my place in the world, and about the health and safety of my loved ones.
The struggles, the cruelties, and the tribulations of this life sometimes seem unfair and overwhelming.
I cannot handle them alone, my Lord; I lay them at your feet.
You have promised to shoulder our burdens, Lord Jesus, and I am taking you up on your promise.
I give myself to you, with all my emotional baggage.
Teach me to lean upon you, to trust you, to know that in your ultimate victory, all of my fears will prove illusory, and my pains, short-lived.
Do not leave me to suffer alone, Lord; do not turn your face away.
Forgive me my every sin and take me to your bosom, for I am your child and I know you love me.
This I pray in your name, whose every word is truth,
