    I pray to you my God to never allow bitterness

    inside me when I cry. No matter how dark the moment can be, always let my light shine. Please open my mind and heart so I can see the truth. Help me to be strong and know patience. Show me the way, I'll be right behind you.

    I encourage prayer. Multiple times a day.

    Pray. Cry out to God because hes listening and wants to make you whole. Become one with God and be content in him. Surround yourself with people who encourage you to do just that.
