#134 - I've Experienced Post Traumatic Stress
Volume 1 - Prayers to Love God

Dear Father, I will never forget it. I was terrified. I thought I was going to die. I had a sudden health crisis. I experienced a fire. I was in a car accident. I was a victim of a crime. I stumbled upon a horrific scene. I was humiliated in front of a group of people. I experienced the hell of a military battle. I was a victim of a natural disaster. I was a hostage. I was a victim of sexual slavery. I received word of a loved one in great peril. I nearly drowned. I was a survivor of a train or plane crash. Father, my sense of safety and security evaporated in a flash. After feeling nothing would ever shake me, I had to face my mortality in an instant. Now I can't sleep at night. If I close my eyes, something may go wrong and I will experience the nightmare again. I may dream about it. I have flashbacks and relive the experience frequently. Things happen during the day that remind me of the incident. Father, I need You, the rock. I need stability. I need to know that no matter what I experience, You will always be there for me. You will see me through. I need to heal from the trauma that I experienced. Set me free from the grip that it has on me. Father, before this experience, I was relying too much on my own strength. Now I see that, without You, my world can collapse in the twinkling of an eye. May I heal from this trauma but may I remember the lesson that I am fully dependent upon You, the faithful and real God who created and sustains me. Amen.
