My Prayer


July 6, 1987


God, please help me in this time to face and deal with my fears, and to seek mortal aid from those of Your children to whom You have given special gifts and callings. Help me to be strong enough not to hurt those who are close to me in this time, and bless each one of them, for they have given me comfort and support time and again. God, thank You for my parents, husband, family, friends, and all those who have helped me. In the name of Your Son, Jesus.
