Prayer against the darkness

black dog

My inner demons have been getting the better of me lately, so I am trying to fight back. This prayer comes from Saint Ignatius of Loyola:

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.

  1. Yes, Matt, it appears to me that a greater experience and understanding of LOVE is a very important factor in challenging life-scenarios! I have observed of late, in the many and varied circles/networks in which I participate, the reality of and a journey with LOVE is a message being communicated loud and clear!
