BEAUTIFUL Prayer---St. Francis de Sales


Do not look forward in fear to the changes and chances of this life;
Rather, look to them with full confidence that, as they arise,
God, to whom you belong will in His love enable you to profit by them.
He has guided you thus far in life, and He will lead you safely through all trials;
and when you cannot stand it, God will bury you in His arms.

Do not fear what may happen tomorrow;
the same everlasting Father who cares for you today
will take care of you then and every day.
He will either shield you from suffering,
or will give you unfailing strength to bear it.
Be at peace, then, and put aside all anxious thoughts and imaginations. Amen.


Amen …:slight_smile:


I think I needed to hear that today.
Thanks for posting.


I have a prayer card with the second part on it on my mirror. It is one of my favorite quotes.


My patron saint


A Salesian priest once gave a card with the second part as you say. I had been looking for it but had given up.
So glad!
