Give us strength so that we come out of this ordeal with our minds and hearts on Thee. Help us to realize you alone will and give us peace. Help us to understand that weeping endureth for a night but joy comes in the morning.
Lord, we never could have made it without you. You guided us with your hand allowing your grace and mercy to life our spirits and cleanse our hearts.
