    What a powerful prayer and aimed so well at the common fault-lines in our make-up. I applaud the simplicity of his prayer- he is talking directly from his heart and soul to his Creator and in doing so he talks without ornamentation, gaudiness, or look-at-me stylish writing. He is simply and reverently praying for God to invest him with strength to do God's will. Absolutely a model of prayer. (Report) Reply

    This is one of the best prayers I have seen in the recent past, to ask for the strength to bear the suffering and to obtain the strength for serving is something very unique and different......100+++++ (Report) Reply
