A Collect to Love Even When Overwhelmed by Our Needs
Loving Father, who has compassion and empathy for our frustrations, keep us from making demands of others when we are overwhelmed, but help us, even in our anger, to respect one another and to seek your will for our needs, that love would always be the timbre of our relationships with you, ourselves, and one another, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
'But Martha was distracted by her many tasks; so she came to him and asked, "Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to do all the work by myself? Tell her then to help me."' - Luke 10:40
