My cousin, who lives in Thailand, is battling cancer.

He found this prayer written out by his mother--and my aunt--in a prayer-book.

Give me courage, Lord,
When I would fail Thee
When hope would surrender
To dark despair
When night comes down
And the storms are raging
Fill my soul with the
Strength of prayer.

When the road is long
And the load is heavy,
And the tempter’s haven
Is fair to see.
Speak to me, Lord,
In my hour of weakness
And give me courage
To strive towards Thee.
