Requested by: Peter Donohoe. Texas State Council Education & Training Trainer.
Lord of us all, I ask for your help and guidance
during this difficult moment in my life. Deepen
my faith so I may accept suffering even though I
do not understand the reason for it. Give me courage
to live each day with acceptance. Grant me strength to
deal with uncertainty and fear. Instill in me virtue to
anchor my thoughts and actions. And in my darkest
moments, touch me with your love so that I may feel
Help me to remember the many gifts I have been given,
and to give thanks for future gifts already on their way.
May each day be marked by love, integrity, and peace
in my personal life.
Let me not forget to give gratitude to those who console
and renew me, who shower their strength and love
upon me, and who treat and attend to me. May they be
rewarded for their selflessness and dedication.
Provide me, during all my days, the wisdom to know
your will, the strength to fight to achieve it, and the
courage to live always with love.
