    I have done the scripture memory 2009, 2011, and 2013. God has recently used many of those verses to pray for and comfort a friend who is dying. I have prayed my first verse from 2009 so many times: Satisfy me in the morning with your unfailing love,
 so that I may sing for joy to the end of my days.
 Give me gladness in proportion to my former misery!
 Replace the evil years with good.
 Let me see your miracles;
 let my children see your glory.
