Good Days…Bad Days With Maureen Pratt


Prayer for a New Year

posted by mpratt

Heavenly Father, you are with us now,

Walking alongside us as we move into a new year.

We are eager for all of the uplifting and inspiring things in store,

But fearful, too, about the difficult times that are part of life.

Help to steer our steps in directions that are good.

Give us clarity of heart and mind to see your way,

And courage to act upon it.

Help us to recognize you in the faces of each person we meet,

And  willingness to extend comfort and fellowship.

In illness, help us still find peace,

In pain, helps us still find joy,

And in all, help us to find you and know that

You are here, walking with us, each step of this,

Another new year.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Chronic Illness: How do you describe it, exactly?
Time often flies by when you're living, and when you have a chronic illness, time passes sometimes in odd ways. Slowly, in some measure, because living with pain is especially, well, painful, and the more pain you feel, the slower time seems to move (just think of waiting for a med to kick in, for e

Chronic Illness: Managing the Munchies
I really, really, really like chocolate. Chocolate and almonds. Or, just chocolate. And yet, I know how bad it can be if I over-indulge. Extra weight on lupus-arthritic joints

Chronic Illness: Managing the Usual with the Unusual
I'm typing this with a sore arm and a couple of month's journey - again - to determine "once and for all" the reason why I don't hold onto iron. For years, I've dealt with iron levels that get lower and lower until, finally, I have to have an infusion. And, for years, the reason for this, or, rather
