• A Prayer for Strength

Heal me, I pray.

Give me strength. 	 	 	 	 	 	 	 	 	 	 
 	Strength to keep trying 	 	 	 	 	 	 	 	 
 	Strength to keep moving 	 	 	 	 	 	 	 	 
 	Strength to heal through my own emotion 	 	 	 	 	 
 	Strength to try again, and again     	 	 	 	 	 	 
 	Strength to measure success 	 	 	 	 	 	 	 
 	By Your yardstick 	 	 	 	 	 	 	 	 	 
 	Strength to stop comparing myself 	 	 	 	 	 	 
 	Strength to stop criticizing myself   	 	 	 	 	 	 
 	Compassion for myself 	 	 	 	 	 	 	 	 
 	As I feel compassion for others

Help me to see myself 	 
 	As a Soul in Service 
Help me to do Your will 	 
 	One more day at a time 
Help me to keep believing   
 	I can complete my Purpose.

I know You are all-knowing
        Otherwise I'd wonder
        Why you thought I could do all this
        But--you know best
 
I will keep doing
 	As Iʼve been given
        And give you thanks
        For the opportunity! 	 
	
                                I asked to be Your servant,
                                      And now I am.
                                I asked to do Your will,
                                      And now I try.
                                I asked to know my Purpose,
                                      And now I do.
                                I asked to be Your hands and feet.
                                      And now I try to be.
                                I asked to love You more.
                                      And it is so.

So often I think, “Why me?	 	 	 	 	 	 	 
 	 	And then I realize, “Why not?”
