“Lord Jesus Christ, you are for me medicine when I am sick; you are my strength when I need help; you are life itself when I fear death; you are the way when I long for heaven; you are light when all is dark; you are my food when I need nourishment.”
I have lived this prayer. I am living this prayer. I have been blessed along the way to encounter many who lived this prayer. I continue to find persons, every day, who are living this prayer. It is a joy.
