I Pray For Gratitude (with worship music videos and lyrics)

Related image

My brain is full of hate

I cannot dissipate,

telling me insults and lies,

causing anger so loud it cries.

I want my ugly, hateful feelings to leave and go,

bring back feelings of love and joy, I used know.

I need to feel grateful for everything big and small,

love my children, my life, myself and God, above all.

My heart is not happy,

I feel mean and crappy.

I need to pray,

maybe all day,

ask God for forgiveness and truly repent

for my bad thoughts and words I have sent.

I know I need help,

cruel words I did yelp.

God help me and save me,

from the person I have come to be,

right now, yesterday and the day before.

I do not want to be like this anymore.

My ugly bipolar beast

has come inside to feast,

and wreak havoc and destroy

all my happiness, love and joy.

This is the mood state

I absolutely hate

and cannot tolerate.

I’m not sure if it is my ugly mania or episodes of mixed,

the worst part of my bipolar that quickly needs to be fixed.

If gratitude is like a magnet,

mine has become stagnant.

I pray to have gratitude,

and adjust my attitude.

I will continue to fight and pray,

and take this mood pole away.

I am fighting to get back

the love and gratitude I lack.

I will be tenacious,

to love and be gracious

for everything I have been given,

and the life I have been livin’


Here are two beautiful songs that helped me today. I hope enjoy them.

The first song “Need You Now” brought me to tears. I prayed as I listened to it.

Thank you, God. God always helps me and saves me.

Praise God for He is good all the time.

“Need You Now” by Plumb (with lyrics)

“Need You Now” Lyrics

Well, everybody’s got a story to tell
And everybody’s got a wound to be healed
I want to believe there’s beauty here
‘Cause oh, I get so tired of holding on
I can’t let go, I can’t move on
I want to believe there’s meaning here

How many times have you heard me cry out
“God please take this”?
How many times have you given me strength to
Just keep breathing?
Oh I need you
God, I need you now.

Standing on a road I didn’t plan
Wondering how I got to where I am
I’m trying to hear that still small voice
I’m trying to hear above the noise

How many times have you heard me cry out
God please take this?
How many times have you given me strength to
Just keep breathing?
Oh I need you
God, I need you now.

Though I walk,

Though I walk through the shadows
And I, I am so afraid
Please stay, please stay right beside me
With every single step I take

How many times have you heard me cry out?
And how many times have you given me strength?

How many times have you heard me cry out
“God please take this”?
How many times have you given me strength to
Just keep breathing?
Oh I need you
God, I need you now.

I need you now

Oh I need you

God, I need you now.

I need you now

I need you now

 “You’re Gonna Be Okay” by Brian and Jenn Johnson (with lyrics)

You’re Gonna Be Okay” Lyrics

I know it’s all you’ve got to just, be strong
And it’s a fight just to keep it together, together
I know you think, that you are too far gone
But hope is never lost
Hope is never lost

Hold on, don’t let go
Hold on, don’t let go

Just take, one step, closer
Put one foot in front of the other
You’ll, get through this
Just follow the light in the darkness
You’re gonna be ok

I know your heart is heavy from those nights
Just remember that you’re a fighter, a fighter
You never know just what tomorrow holds
And you’re stronger than you know
Stronger than you know

Hold on, don’t let go
Hold on, don’t let go

Just take, one step, closer
Put one foot in front of the other
You’ll, get through this
Just follow the light in the darkness
One step, closer
Put one foot in front of the other
You’ll, get through this
Just follow the light in the darkness
You’re gonna be ok

And when the night, is closing in
Don’t give up and don’t give in
This won’t last, it’s not the end, it’s not the end
You’re gonna be ok
When the night, is closing in
Don’t give up and don’t give in
This won’t last, it’s not the end, it’s not the end
You’re gonna be ok

  1. Incredible I really liked this and I can relate. But I found prayer does wonders for calming me down when I have my mood swings. God heals; he really does. I’m proof of that. I really hope you can get through this but know you are not alone. Dave

    • Thank you very much for your kind and encouraging comments. I appreciate them. I believe God heals too and I know that God has saved my life numerous times and He continues to heal me to the point that He wants me to be healed. He saves my life every day. God ‘s love and prayers and listening to my worship music is what helps me get through and helps me cope during difficult moments. I had a bad moment today and prayer and my worship music helped me a lot today. I have rapid cycling so my mood poles can switch quickly. That is a gift and sometimes not a good thing. Anyway I am happy you liked my post and I am happy you could relate to it. Thank you very much. Have a happy, healthy and fabulous day. Hugs, Sue
