Dear Lord, please grant me the wisdom to know when to act and when to speak so that I may be an enhancement to the work of your desires and not a detriment. Most of all, I pray, for the compassion to love those who I find difficult. Lord, please bless those who are suffering from cancer and other maladies. Help them to be strong during their treatments. Let them know that you have the last word, not man. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
