Lord You care for me, You protect me,
and You show me how to live
according to Your ways.
This gives me the power and strength
to face up to the difficulties and trials
that come my way.
But sometimes these concerns
threaten to distract me
and forget Your gift of Yourself in me.
Help me to always be aware
of Your gracious presence which sustains me
no matter what tribulations I may encounter.

— By a Columban Missionary
