I may be having a few...psychological problems.  If you wouldn't mind praying for me, I would sincerely be thankful.
I know a secret about a former Supreme Court Justice.  Can you guess what it is?

Lord, have mercy. And if you believe that to be the case, for the love of God, see someone..... soon!

May the Lord have mercy and grant you healing!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Lord, have mercy!
“But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you. To him who strikes you on the one cheek, offer the other also. And from him who takes away your cloak, do not withhold your tunic either.” +Luke 6:27-29

If you think you've got something to be concerned about, you probably do.  Kudos to you for going to see someone... ain't no shame in that game, bubba!  PM me if you'd like to visit.

Lord, have mercy! May the Lord God grant you healing and that which is beneficial for your soul and body.

I am just guessing at what your problem may be, but I hope it's not too presumptuous for me to say you should consider speaking to a good therapist: they really can help.
The Episcopallian road is easy and wide, for many go through it to find destruction. lol sorry channeling Isa.

Lord have mercy!
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

i have a friend who is a professor of psychiatry.
in total i have 3 orthodox friends who are psychiatry specialists.
so i think psychiatrists are often cool.
i have a psychologist friend too, she's cool as well!  8)

may God guide you, and also speak to someone like a priest or mature spiritual Christian who can advise you of the right person to see. we all have / have had various problems in life, you are not alone, and remember God cares for you and will lead you into all truth.

may God have mercy, lead you and guide you.

The unsolicited psychological advice has been moved to Non-Religious Topics, as it is inappropriate for the Prayer Forum.
