A prayer for when darkness comes

When darkness comes and fear of the unknown reigns
when pain persists and fear of the unknown reigns
when sleepless nights are commonplace and fear of the unknown reigns
may I invite and welcome release
may I invite and welcome relief
may I invite and welcome friends to pray and help me rise above
for one more moment, one more hour, one more day.

when darkness comes
when pain persists
when sleepless nights are commonplace
may I concentrate on the love that surrounds
may I concentrate on the hope that sustains
may I concentrate on the healing that is coming
as friends, family, doctors, nurses do what they can
with their loving thoughts, prayers, professional care, kind actions
and help me rise above for one more moment,  one more hour,
one more day.
