    Someone at work put this on my desk, and I wanted to share it with all of you.

    O God, you know my feelings
    You know that I want to feel better
    I want to have my health restored.

    Grant me, O God
    The strength to face each hour
    of this & everyday
    In fact, it seems that I cannot
    Face even this hour,

    Fill me the sufficent strength
    To face the next 5 minutes.

    Thank you, Lord for listening and answering.

    Dear Beadlady,

    Thank you for that inspiring poem! I have found that just sending up a litle prayer can help us get through the next 5 minutes, half hour, hour, or even a day,right? I am so Thankful that God does not judge but offers strength to help us get through all of our hard times! The Serenity Prayer has always been a favorite in my family:

    Short Version:

    God,grant me the serenity
    To accept the things I cannot change
    The courage to change the things I can
    And the wisdom to know the difference

    Faith, Peace and Comfort, Julie
