Give us strength, Lord. Because sometimes things get tough, and we are ready to quit.
Give us your love, Lord. Because sometimes people reject us, and we are tempted to hate.
Give us your eyes, Lord. Because sometimes life gets dark, and we lose our way.
Give us courage, Lord. Because often we are put under pressure, and it's hard to do what is right.
Give us yourself, Lord. Because our hearts were made for you, and we will not rest until we rest in you.
Mark Link, S.J. (from Day by Day: the Notre Dame Prayer Book for Students)
