Prayer for tough times.

I thought today would be a great day to offer several things up to God. I have found that allowing God to take the reigns in my life does wonders for the situation and my mental health. Some items I am thinking about right now are my mother-in-law who is sick with cancer and is worse today than she was two months ago. She is stabilizing, but not improving much at all. I am also thinking about the US Auto Industry and all of my family and friends that rely on the auto industry for their careers and income. This country would be devastated if GM, Chrysler or Ford disappeared. I am also concerned for our family friend Allison and her mother. Al's Gramma was diagnosed three months ago with incurable throat cancer. She went down pretty quickly the last month. Her husband was a diabetic and failed to take care of himself recently. On Monday he slipped into a diabetic coma in the morning, then his wife passed less than 12hrs later. One of my close friends is looking for work. Finally my coworker Linda has a daughter who is carrying a child which will be born with un-treatable birth defects that will result in the child dying during or shortly after birth. Like I said tough times and definitely time to turn to a higher power for advice and help.

Please let your comforting hands come upon all the situations that I have mentioned above. Your wisdom, guidance and security are needed in tough situations. We rely on you for all our needs and turn to you for healing in these times. We know you are always shining your light of guidance, please direct us towards that light so that we may know what your will is. We know that there is also comfort in that light. We know in seemingly unbearable times you are sitting there right next to us. All we have to do is lean over and put our head on your shoulder for support. Help us to remember that and help us to look for those signs that you have given us. I pray that your will be done in your Son's most Holy name, Jesus Christ. Amen
