3 am Prayer for Courage

This is one of those nights.  I woke up and made the mistake of trying to figure out how I was going to manage to keep everything and everyone going tomorrow.  Instant recipe for insomnia.  So instead I decided it was time to search up new scriptures and quotes and a few favorite old ones, to help me have the courage to lay it all in the Lord’s hands again for the night.

103-800

                   Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say,  on the Lord.

  • The courage of life is often a less dramatic spectacle than the courage of a final moment; but it is no less a magnificent mixture of triumph and tragedy.  ~John F. Kennedy

  • A hero is no braver than an ordinary man, but he is braver five minutes longer.  ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

               Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the Lord. 

  • “All men have their fears, but those who face their fears with Faith have Courage as well” President Thomas S. Monson in April 2014 LDS General Conference: 
  • Valor is stability, not of legs and arms, but of courage and the soul.  ~Michel de Montaigne
  •  Anyone can give up, it’s the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that’s true strength.             – Unknown
Much better now.  Good night.
