I ask that you give me the guidance and knowledge to handle this diagnosis. I pray that I’m given the proper education about diabetes and the right medication to assist my body in the healing process.
In time, I hope that I can move from asking “why me?” to seeing that even in the midst, you are still good. There is a reason that I found out before it was too late, there is a reason that I am able to live and tell the story of my diagnosis, there is a reason that I got treatment in time, and while I may not know why at this moment, I pray that I will one day know.
Help me God get through the rough days. Help me learn how to eat right and how to take my medication correctly. Help me not to do what I need to so that diabetes is not a death sentence for me.
Lord, I know you’ll never leave me or forsake me and I ask that you help me to remember that, especially when I feel alone.
