Lord please help make me

emotionally and mentally strong


enough to withstand the buffets

and craziness of this day’s living

and the weakness i’ve displayed as kindness –

what do i do to accept

it all as this?


through tears strengthen me

may i not accept sympathy

but words of wisdom to get through

even if it’s hard let me lift it up to You


it’s frustrating work, Lord

but i can’t lie

let me give you any mental strain

any headaches, any lack of strength,

any reserve –

please give me the strength to keep on trying
