Prayer of the Month

This Prayer of Gilbert Shaw was written nearly 100 years ago and yet it still speaks of today's problems and fears. I hope it helps someone this month:

Lord, give us the grace to hold to you when all is weariness and fear and sin abounds within, without
when love itself is tested by the doubt...
that love is false, or dead within the soul, when every act brings new confusion, new distress,
new opportunities, new misunderstandings, and every thought new accusation.
O Lord, give us grace that we may know
that in the darkness pressing round
it is the mist of sin that hides your face,
that you are there,
and you do know we love you still
and our dependence and endurance in your will
is still our gift of love. Amen.
