A Prayer for the Newly Diagnosed

A new year sparks visions of promise for a world free of MS. Until that day arrives, however, every new year – every single day – adds to the roster of MS warriors. I wanted to share this prose as a response to the inevitable question: Why Me?

A Prayer for the Newly Diagnosed

The Lord wept because of their suffering.
As they grappled forward, his tears began to fade.

He was struck by unity,
as they faced individual struggles.
With every setback,
He saw impassioned determination.
In the face of despair,
hope redefined reality.

When He witnessed the strength of MS warriors,
heaven parted and the Lord said,
“Their valiancy shall be salvation for all.
Send unto the world another.”

Because it is a fight.
The fight is not over and it won’t be over until a cure is found.
It will never stop…nor will we
It will never quit…nor will we
This is why we ride!
