Dear Lord,
Please grant me the strength to continue even when odds are against me. Grant me strength to deal with people who try to drag me down. Help me to see all the blessings that are in my life, housing, family, and friends. Help me to see the good in me and guide me to my strengths.

This is the prayer I sent up this morning on my way to work with tears in my eyes and facing some pretty depressing shit. I am not alone in this and that gives me peace.

Live Long and Prosper!
