I was inspired by this letter I received that I will share with you. I hope that it helps you in your time of need my friend. These are concepts that I believe, they give me hope when I can’t explain things. When you ask for prayers (positive vibes, good mojo, a universal or cosmic hug) this is where I go…
Dear Friend, Prayer has the power to transform our fear into faith. Prayer reminds us that we are never alone. Everything we are, body and soul, is in the hands of God. God’s presence fills the universe, and He is as close to us as our own breath. No matter what pain sends our way, with God by our side, we can find the strength to confront our fears. With God accompanying us on our journey, no matter what the path, no one walks alone. God invites us “not to be afraid.” The Lord tells us throughout scripture that He is with us, and so we need not fear. In Christ, Father Pat Father Patrick J.

Yesterday is gone.
Tomorrow has not yet come.
We have only today.
Let us begin.

Do not fear, for I am with you. Do not be afraid for I am your God. I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you… Isaiah 41:10
