Weekly Prayer - Give Me Courage to Begin Again

Dear God, give me the courage to begin again,
to overlook the difficulties,
to overcome the obstacles
and to stay open to the moment as best I can.
Help me be patient enough
to know it takes time to start over,
and wise enough to ask for help
from friends and family when I need it. 
As I look to the future, may I reflect
on the past and remember the lessons
it's taught me. 
And God, may I always look to You
for strength and guidance.
