Set free, O Lord, the souls of your servants
from all restlessness and anxiety.
Give us that peace and power which flow from you.
When we are in perplexity and distress,
uphold us by your strength
and keep us on the rock of your faithfulness
that we may abide in you now and evermore.
Francis Paget, 1851 – 1911, English Bishop and theologian
The Westminster Collection of Christian Prayers, slightly modified
I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me.
Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows.
But take heart, because I have overcome the world.
