God,

There’s so much to pray about

Broken promises in the United States Supreme Court

Babies getting vaccinations (Amen, Alleluia)

wars, monkeypox,

the rising inflation prices.

God my brain is so full of prayers, I feel like I’m going to burst.

So I think I’m just going to breathe…

And pray

God help us….(breathe in)

there is too much….(breathe out)

Jesus walk with us…(breathe in)

there is too much…(breathe out)

Holy Spirit comfort us…(breathe in)

there is too much…(breathe out)

God..breathe with me…(breathe in)

there is too much…(breathe out)

Jesus breathe with me..(breathe in)

there is too much…(breathe out)

Spirit breathe with me…(breathe in)

there is too much…Breathe in)

Amen…(breathe in)

Amen (breathe out)

(for now)…
