1. Don't feel guilty. I'm sure you're getting just as much help for yourself

by not praying as you do by praying.

Things have a way of working out.

2. Since you pray, I assume that you believe in a deity as an omnipotent and omniscient being.

That being the case, you don't need to worry about His/Her/Its bandwidth. That kind of deity can handle anything anyone throws at Him/Her/It, in any quantity, any time, all the time. Major, minor, picayune... it doesn't matter, it's all a drop in the bucket.

3. Don't feel guilty

Whatever you're going through is happening to YOU.

4. The airplane thing about oxygen masks: you have to be sure you are together before you can

help others. You could also follow the Buddhists' lead (I'm not a Buddhist) and pray in concentric circles outward -- for you -- for your community -- for your country -- for the world -- for the universe ... etc

Have you followed Caroline Myss on prayer?

5. Pray for the strength to cope,

and if you can, help others as well.
