This prayer is for anyone who finds self-pity difficult to resist. Reach out to God, asking Him to free you from this burden in the face of loss, pain, or frustration.

Lord,

Please help me in the moments when I would like to give in to the spiral of self-pity that pulls me to the bottom.

Father, I find time and time again that I am weakest when I have to react quickly, when I am running out of time, or when I am overwhelmed by helplessness or loneliness. Self-pity comes to me when I am not sleeping, when I’m overwhelmed with work, or when things just aren’t working.

Lord, I ask You to come to my aid. Like King David, I call to You:

In You our ancestors put their trust; they trusted and You delivered them. To You they cried out and were saved; in You they trusted and were not put to shame.

Psalm 22: 4-5

So today, I put before You my challenges and my self-pity, and I ask You to free me from its grip.

God, I submit my will to Yours and give space to You. Thank You, Jesus, for lifting me up and bringing me clarity. Thank You, my Creator. With You, I realize that You have a better plan for this situation, this ordeal of mine.

Thank You for hearing me. I’m so grateful that I can honestly admit to You what weighs on me. Thank You for letting me tell You how I feel. Thank You for changing my mood into acceptance and giving me compassion for others. Thank You for encouraging me to face the pain that draws me even closer to Your merciful Heart.

Triumphant King, thank You for Your victory on the cross, which feeds me. Through Your sacrifice, I can get up again and deal with the challenges You set for me.

I see You dissolving my arrogance, selfishness, and complacency with Your merciful gaze and love.

Thank You for giving me this wonderful opportunity to acknowledge again that You are greater than all external circumstances. Thank You for still allowing me to be Your child.

Jesus, bless all who have found themselves in a similar battle. Thank You for teaching me greater humility through this flaw of mine.

Amen.

Support Operando Society

We are devoted volunteers and we don't want to live in a society where there are a poverty, hunger and misery, which is just inexcusable!

We believe our World can be better, nicer and fair. We do our best to contribute, adding our peace of the puzzle to get this beautiful picture we all thrive for.

We are not paid for the work we do; the money is not our motivation and doesn't drive us in our endeavours working with (and for) the poor from the edges of our society. But of course, without financial resources, we could not implement our goals and activities.

Our website and all that we offer you for free actually cost us. A global missionary journey of our volunteers, Silva and Nace, also costs. There are expenses of transport that we pay regularly from our account - the money that depends on our donors, sponsors, supporters and all the others who want to contribute their share to our mission.

Hence, your donation is not a gift for the benefits of our members and volunteers. It is entirely spent to develop new projects and to cover our regular expenses: website maintenance, accounting and travel expenses for our volunteers.

We know that you care. So we encourage you to support our work and make it possible for us to help the poorest in this World.
