prayer against sadness (saint ignatius of loyola)

Prayer against Sadness:
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.
Amen.
-Saint Ignatius of Loyola
