    For everyone - This has spoken to me as I pray for strength and wanted to share with everyone:

    "O Lord,

    In this time of need, strengthen me. You are my strength and my shield; You are my refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. I know, Father, that Your eyes go to and fro throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts long for You. The body grows weary, but my hope is in You to renew my strength.

    I do not fear, for You are with me.

    I am not dismayed or overwhelmed, for You are my God. I know You will strengthen me and help me; that You will uphold me with Your righteous hand. Even as the shadows of illness cover me, I feel the comfort of Your strength, Or Lord.

    Amen.

    O Lord, be gracious unto us; we have waited for thee; be thou their arm every morning our salvation also in the time of trouble.

    Isaiah 33:2
