For one more day... endure

Though things seem to go bad and stay bad... endure

For your children and with your children... endure

On an odd day where things go wrong... endure

On the day when all goes right, remember times you had to... endure

For that small but highly significant area of your life that is a struggle right now... endure

Because of (and not in spite of) your loved ones, friends and colleagues... endure

When you have too much on... endure

For the aged-parent in the nursing home... endure
When everything within you wants to give up... endure

When your prayers are all at sea and the world seems all too messy... endure

In the quiet... endure

In the flurry of chaos and fury... endure

When nothing makes sense... endure

And if sorrows boil over you... endure

At a time when you do give up, and you then commit every sinew to starting over again, afresh... endure

When you come to your very last step... endure

In the light of the truth, take courage... endure

When you’ve lost all sense of hope... endure

Simply... patiently endure all things as far as you can.
