It has been said that “Courage is fear that has said its prayers.”
Say your prayers. In any manner in which you are accustomed to pray. It does not matter how you pray, just pray.
And from that place of prayer you will inherit, receive, from a power greater than yourself, what you need. This Power, will allow you to tap into a Positive Force, a God Force, to Flex your Spiritual Muscle and display a wondrous, amazing, vitality and vigor, that in some instances, when you display this power, you will consider this display of power to be absolutely miraculous.
On today, right now, Be Still. Breathe. As you breathe…Receive and say: The grace of God flows through me. Grace. Fortitude. Stamina… are mine.(Repeat several times).
To endure the most painful circumstances
even when, especially when, innately,
you fear you can’t make it
is a synonym for Courage.

You gain strength, courage, and confidence
by every experience in which you really stop
to look fear in the face. You must do the thing
which you think you cannot do.
If you lose hope, somehow you lose the vitality
that keeps life moving, you lose that courage to be,
that quality that helps you go on in spite of it all.
And so today I still have a dream.
