There are times, O God, when we are forced to attend to things that we have avoided for way too long. Help us to face them for not what they have become to our over active imaginations, but for what they truly are. Let us also know when it is simply time to accept that we need to face them and the consequences that attend them. Let us also be comfortable enough to ask for help from those we love to not have to face them alone. Help us to be people who are also willing to journey along side others who are facing challenging times. May we be who you would have us now and always. Amen.
