Borrowed: A Prayer to Live with Grace

May we discover through pain and torment
the strength to live with grace and humor.
May we discover through doubt and anguish
the strength to live with dignity and holiness.
May we discover through suffering and fear
the strength to move toward healing.
May it come to pass that we be restored to health and to vigor.
May Life grant us wellness of body, spirit, and mind.
And if this cannot be so, may we find in this transformation and passage
moments of meaning, opportunities for love and the deep and gracious calm
that comes when we allow ourselves to move on.

(I found this prayer by Rabbi Rami M. Shapiro [Source: SoultoSpirit.com] on beliefnet.com and thought it was well worth sharing.)
