"Please pray for me. I am meeting him at 4:30."
When I feel the need for extraordinary strength, I have a handful of friends to call on. We send each other text messages requesting prayers for a particular problem we have, or for someone else, or just because one of us is feeling the big bad cloud of depression hanging over. We go to mass or say a prayer for each other.
The above is an SMS I received just a short while ago. We have our own lives, traveling our individual roads but we know someone's got our backs.
This prayer link is such a powerful tool, giving courage, hope and light. I am so lucky!
