This has been on my heart...
There is a very important place where Calvin's Reform theology and Jesuit spirituality cross. Calvin believed that our faith is rooted in our sense of gratitude to the Lord. Loyola taught his followers that ingratitude is the root of all sin. Sometimes we feel so surrounded and immersed in sorrow and trouble that we find it hard to express our gratitude to the Lord for all we have. When that happens we sometimes forget to pray.
At all times and places in our lives we are called to pray. If it's hard to express thanks in the immediacy of some crisis, then begin your prayers with this simple expression: "Thank you Lord for listening to my prayers."

We may be embarrassed or too angry to share our burdens in prayer. I suggest spending some time with the book of Lamentations to remember that bringing everything to the Lord includes when we feel injured or hurt or angry with the Lord. Bring everything to our Lord. Amen.
