Prayer: Francis De Sales

Do not look forward in fear to the changes of life,
rather look to them with full hope,
that as they arise,
God, whose very own you are will deliver you from out of them.
He has kept you hitherto and he will lead you safely
through all things;
and when you cannot stand it God will bury you in his arms.

Do not fear what may happen tomorrow.
The same loving father who cares for you today
will take care of you then and everyday.
He will either shield you from suffering
or will give unfailing strength to bear it.
Be at peace an put aside
all anxious thoughts and imaginations.
