Lord, I need new energy for life,
to meet all its challenges again.
I need Your help, Your strength,
to overcome all the tiredness I feel.
When I see others in full flight,
see them glide through life
with effortless ease and elation,
I sometimes wonder why.
I get so tired, and everything’s an effort,
but only say the word, Lord, and I shall be healed.
Lord, awaken my spirit with Your healing touch
so I can turn to Your with joy.
-- By Columban Fr. Patrick Sayles
