Thursday Prayer

God, make me brave for life: oh, braver than this.
Let me straighten after pain, as a tree straightens after the rain,
Shining and lovely again.
God, make me brave for life; much braver than this.
As the blown grass lifts, let me rise
From sorrow with quiet eyes,
Knowing Thy way is wise.
God, make me brave, life brings
Such blinding things.
Help me to keep my sight;
Help me to see aright
That out of dark comes light.

Friends, please pray for a friend whose mother was found unconscious on Weds of a stroke. If she recovers, there will most likely be significant damage.

The family with children who showed up at my church for the first time on Sunday called me Tuesday to say "We recently lost a premature baby who lived only 2 days, and the person who was to preside at the funeral cancelled. Will you?" Yesterday the whole family had to go to the emergency room with food poisoning. The funeral was this morning. Please pray for them all.
