Excerpt from: Prayer That Relieves Stress and Worry
You know me far better than I know myself...
You understand me far better than I understand myself.
At times my life may be full of stress and worry.
When I pass through those stormy waters,
be with me and calm me,
and still the beating of my heart.
For in you, O Lord is deep rest,
perfect rest, all calm and all consolation.
I give you the worries of this day.
I give you the stresses of this day.
Keep me always near you,
for in your presence is calm.
In your presence in nurture and guidance.
Your strong arms stretch out to hold me up when I stumble.
