Have faith, my friend

Have faith, my friend 

Even when your prayers seem unanswered,
and you can't get what you want.

Even when you're in need of help and comfort,
and nobody seems to be there for you.

Even when the one you love can't love you back.

Even when people hate you, mock you and insult you.

Even when you lose someone/something
who/which you know is irreplaceable.

Even when waiting seems endless
and becomes utterly painful.

Even when your job gets harder . . . 
and harder and harder.

Even when you barely see hope.

Even amid hunger and thirst.

Even amid natural disaster and war.

Even when in physical pain.

Even when the world isn't being fair.

Have faith, my friend. 
Just hold on.

The world may abandon you,

but God never will.
