A Prayer for Courage
I read this prayer written by Akanu Ibiam in a book of Lenten devotions a couple of days ago. Fear is a stumbling block for many, an excuse for unfulfilled goals and dreams, and a cause of anxiety and regret. May we be filled with cheerful courage in the face of any challenge.
The words are typed on a picture I took of a desolate stretch of highway in the north of Mexico earlier this year.
