Dear Heavenly Father, I may think I cannot do many things when I am burdened down and in great pain. I may think I have no choices. I may think there is no end to my plight. I may think I cannot deal with things as they are. However, when I am in the deepest darkness, I know I must be willing to admit I can be wrong and I know I must be willing to admit I can be deceived. For when I have you alive within me, you give me the power to do many things I cannot normally do when I am burdened down. When I have you in my life, my pain may not stop but my victory over the pain can be achieved whether I hurt or not. When I have you in my life, I have many more choices than I think I have. When I have you in my life, there is for me a great and victorious end to my plight. In you, there are victories to be won every minute. In you, there are triumphant moments every moment. In you, I have won even when it seems I have been pounded down in utter defeat. In you, the trials and heartaches of this life grow dim as I come to you seeking your healing love. In my life, there is more to life than the reality of my trauma and tragedy. In my life, I have a mountain of great power where I can go and kneel down in prayer. In my life, my mountain of great power is a place called Calvary. For it was on Calvary, a place where you suffered more than I have suffered or will suffer, that my victory over every moment of my trauma and tragedy was won. All these things I humbly pray in the name of Lord Jesus Christ and my Ever-present Holy Spirit upon whom I can rely. Amen and Amen.
