“Lord, give me all that I need to do what you would have me do this day,” Lisa has prayed each morning since October 15, 2004, when the Casualty Operations Desk verified that her son Matthew was listed as VSI (Very Seriously Injured). His tank was attacked inIraq, and all the other soldiers were killed.

Over the years Lisa knows that Matthew’s progress can stop anywhere. Her prayer continues to be, “Lord, give me all that I need to do what you would have me do this day.”

What do you need today? Just ask. God will dive in when we’re drowning in sorrow. God will walk by our side when we need companionship. God will carry us when we can go no farther.
