My Daily Prayer

Dear Lord,

Thank you for this day.

Hold my hand and give me courage

to carry the cross You have chosen for me. Let me never complain.

Let me smile and give strength

to my family and friends

and to all I come in contact with.

I accept what I have and will not ask, "Why me?" I will fight until You take me because it is my belief that I was made to serve You on earth - and death is my final reward.

~ Betty McElwee - 1984

Today is Here

Lord, I do give thee thanks

for the abundance that is mine.
