A Prayer for Stress and a Stressful Day


In the modern world humans are not exposed to a lot of immediately dangerous stress (such as being attacked by a lion), but we do face a lot of low grade stress that eats at us. Stress at work, school, and at home can eat away at us if we do not place it in its proper perspective. This prayer for a stressful day, based on a prayer by John Henry Newman, provides some Christian perspective to our lives..

roadMay the Lord support us all the day long,
until the shadows lengthen,
and the evening comes,
and the busy world is hushed,
and the fever of life is over and our work is done!
Then in His mercy,
may He give us a safe lodging,
and a holy rest, and peace at the last.
John Henry Newman (1801-1890),
