from faithless fears and worldly anxieties

Most loving Father,
   who has taught us to dread nothing
   except for the loss of You,
preserve me
   from faithless fears and worldly anxieties,
   from corrupting passions and
   an unholy love of earthly treasures;
and grant that no clouds of this mortal life
   may hide me from the light of that love which is immortal
   and which You has manifested unto us
   in Your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

William Bright, 1824-1901, English Anglican Priest


So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’
   or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’
For the pagans run after all these things,
   and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness,
   and all these things will be given to you as well.
