I hate not having control. I hate having to sit back and watch others make decisions and live destructively, and there is nothing I can do about it.
I hate the feeling of helplessness, of desperately wanting to make the situation right again, but there is nothing... nothing that can be done.
I hate watching the impending reaping of wrong decisions, waiting for the blow that will take the situation beyond anyone's control.
I hate seeing those I love be hurt, especially the ones too young and innocent to do anything. They have no voice. I have no voice.
It's situations like this when I'm reminded how necessary, how needed prayer is. There is nothing I CAN do, but pray.
Lord, help me to be strong in prayer, when there is nothing else I can be.
