Prayer for my family...

Just got back from a trip to Maryland to see my father and sister - both of whom have been very ill - and one who remains in very broken condition.  I am grateful for the prayers that you have shared and have wondered what I might say in return.  I have been at a loss until my buddy from Thunder Bay, Ontario hit the nail on the head by helping me recall the words of wisdom shared towards the end of the movie "A River Runs Through It."  This is so true on so many levels...

Each one of us here today will at one time in our lives look upon a loved one who is in need and ask the same question: We are willing to help, Lord, but what, if anything, is needed? For it is true we can seldom help those closest to us. Either we don't know what part of ourselves to give or, more often than not, the part we have to give is not wanted. And so it those we live with and should know who elude us. But we can still love them - we can love completely without complete understanding.
