“casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.” (1 Peter 5:7, NASB95)
“With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints,” (Ephesians 6:18, NASB95)
You are going through a tunnel of pain and grief for the situations and persons around you. How much greater is My grief for them! Let your spirit reach up to Me and then out to these others. In union with Me your prayers for them will be more effective. Your desires for them will be changed in My directions – not your own! Put all these burdens on Me and I will give you rest. Let go and let Me take this responsibility that weighs so heavily on your heart. You cannot lift their loads for them. But through you (as you abide in Me) I can lift these persons into My greater Reality and situations will change. Pray for them in the Spirit, letting My Spirit – in union with yours – pray through you.
