PRAYER FOR STRENGTH AND COURAGE Dear Lord of grace and mercy, Gives us the strength to move on, and

the courage to let go. A strength to follow Your Will, and courage to forgive and ask Your Mercy. Give us the strength, O Lord Jesus, to feel Your pain and the courage to follow Your ways. The strength to conquer, As we take the courage to surrender. Give us the strength, O Lord, To stand alone and the courage to trust in You. The strength of being loved and courage to love. For we know, O Lord, what it takes the strength to survive, But only with Your Divine Grace and Mercy, dear God, can we take the courage to rise up and live a whole life anew. JESUS, I TRUST IN YOU. Amen.
