Praying for Trust


The following prayer is attributed to St. Ignatius Loyola (1491 – 1556), the founder of the Society of Jesus. I have found it called both a Prayer for Trust as well as a Prayer When Depressed. 

O Christ Jesus,
when all is darkness 
and we feel our weakness 
and helplessness, 
give us the sense of
 Your presence, 
Your love, 
and Your strength. 
Help us to have perfect trust 
in Your protecting love
 and strengthening power, 
so that nothing may
 frighten or worry us, 
for, living close to You ,
we shall see Your hand,
 Your purpose, Your will 
through all things. 
Amen.
