Prayer for victory

On a day like today

when it's easy to forget,

remind me of times

you were patient and kind.

On a day like today,

when it's easy to fear,

incline my mind

to your mercy and strength.

When this world overwhelms me,

and I am afraid,

I praise your Presence

that comes to my aid.

Thank you for kind strangers,

and patient friends.

For your spirit-mercy

when my heart fails within.

On a day like today,

when my memory

sputters like a flame,

May your Light be the force

that brings comfort to pain.
