Footprints Prayer

One night I had a dream...I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord, and across the sky flashed scenes from my life.  For each scene I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand.  One belonged to me and the other to the Lord.  When the last scene of my life flashed before us, I looked back at the footprints in the sand.  I noticed that many times along the path of my life, there was only one set of footprints.  I also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in my life.  This really bothered me, and I questioned the Lord about it.  "Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you, you would walk with me all the way.  But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life, there is only one set of footprints.  I don't understand why in times when I needed you most, you should leave me.  The Lord replied, "My precious, precious child, I love you and I would never, never leave you during your times of trial and suffering.  When you saw only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you."
