Father of mercy and God of all comfort…
Show us how to handle deep disappointment and hurt, as redemptively as possible. 
Show us the difference between appropriate anger and destructive rage.
Show us how to pray down the gospel, lest we try to call down fire.
Show us how to hope when we want to hurl something.
Show us how to keep from importing old wounds into a new wound.
Show us how to listen to you quietly, 100 times more than we launch our opinions.
Show us how to grieve and lament, and not gossip and mock.
Show us the difference between worldly sadness and godly sorrow.
Show us what the gospel looks like in stories that seem to utterly contradict it.
Show us how to be still, and know that you are God.
