Eleanor Roosevelt's Prayer

Eleanor Roosevelt was born on this day in 1884. After her death in 1962, this "Prayer for All Those Who Work or Fight in the War" was found in her wallet:

Lord, have pity upon all men [sic]
To those who are in darkness, be their light.
To those who are in despair, be their hope.
To those who are suffering, be their healing.
To those who are fearful, be their courage.
To those who are defeated, be their victory.
To those who are dying, be their life.
