I need You God, but this day specially,
I need some extra strength to face whatever is to be…
This day more than any day I need to feel you near,
to fortify my courage and to overcome my fear.
By myself I cannot meet the challenge of the hour.
There are times when human creatures need a higher Power
to help them bear what must be borne
and so, dear God, I pray
hold on to my trembling hand
and be with me today. Amen
