Consider this “Prayer For Needing Help” by Liturgies for Parents

We know this season
requires sacrifice
Help us be gentle with ourselves
As we show up In unexpected ways and in unexpected days
We need Your Help, O God

We don’t know how to hold
The weight of expectations
And we feel our limitations
As we navigate pressures
And parenting
And politics
And a pandemic
We need Your help, O God

Meet us here in our humanity
For Your power is made perfect
in weakness
And may the gentleness we
give ourselves
Pour out in our interactions
With our families
And our neighbors
And even those who leave us scratching our heads
We need Your help, O God
