Prayer of Pope St. John xxiii

Prayer For Strength – Pope St. John XXIII

Every day I need you, Lord, but today especially,

I need some extra strength to face whatever is to come.

This day, more than any other day,

I need to feel you near me to strengthen my

Courage and to overcome any fear.

By myself I cannot meet the challenge of the hour.

We are frail human creatures and we need a Higher Power to sustain us in all that life may bring.

And so, dear Lord, hold my trembling hand.

Be with me, Lord, this day and stretch out your powerful arm to help me.

May your love be upon me as I place all my hope in you. Amen.

Pope Saint John XXIII.
