A Prayer for Courage


When waves rock the shores and threaten survival
When pain follows each new sunrises arrival
When the path you take leaves more questions than answers
And life seems consumed by the course of your cancer

Keep this in mind that whatever life brings
There are no guarantees; there are no promised dreams
Courage will be found when you find you most need it
It is pulled from that source where you need only heed it

The choice you have left is the hardest to make
The road now before you is the one you must take
This prayer is written with the love to remind us
That courage and hope is the tie that will bind us

Lord, I know life's not always the way I had planned
Give me the strength now to meet its demands
Help to pull from within me the courage to fight
The spark of fire that burns deep help me bravely ignite

I will never surrender or give up this fight
And each tomorrow I see will prove my course to be right.
I won't ever give in to my temptations to stray
Because I know each tomorrow will bring healing my way.

I will share what I've learned and pass on the news
That faith and good deeds in the cosmos accrues
Yours is but a journey a lesson from above
So worry no more, and know you are loved
