Please grant me the courage and strength to go on in these dark days of my life. Please do not let my suffering cause me to withdraw from my daily life, but to continue on with new strength of character. I know that this silly disease cannot kill me and yet I let it run my life.I want to have the courage to forge ahead with life for my husband and my little girls. I know you are always with me but I still falter sometimes and grow anxious and depressed. Please hear my prayers and if you see fit, please take this affliction from me. Amen.
