Prayers Ancient and Modern 05/24

O God, who makest cheerfulness the companion of strength, but apt to take wings in time of sorrow, we humbly beseech Thee that if, in Thy sovereign wisdom, Thou sendest weakness, yet for Thy mercy’s sake deny us not the comfort of patience. Lay not more upon us, O heavenly Father, than Thou wilt enable us to bear; and, since the fretfulness of our spirits is more hurtful than the heaviness of our burden, grant us that heavenly calmness which comes of owning Thy hand in all things, and patience in the trust that Thou doest all things well—Amen.

Rowland Williams.

Grant, we beseech Thee, Almighty God, that we, who in our tribulation are yet of good cheer because of Thy lovingkindness, may find Thee mighty to save from all dangers, through Jesus Christ—Amen.

Roman Breviary.
