Almighty God, You are the strength of all who put their trust in You. Grant to us in the midst of the troubles of this earthly life that, being confident in Your wisdom and goodness, and Your abiding love, we may endure all things in a quiet spirit. May we seek ever in the midst of the things of this world to meditate often upon the divine peace and the heavenly rest of the glorified spirits of light. Being upheld by your mercy, may we neither faint nor fear, but carry on, faithfully doing the duties of life. And in our last hour, supported by the Everlasting arms, we look to You to guide us into the life everlasting. This we do ask, in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord – Amen.
