Catholic Thought for the Day

Thought for the Day: A Prayer.

Merciful, caring and nourishing God,

you are my enduring rock of stability,

and my tower of strength in danger.

Be with me as I cry to you in my pain.

Listen to my heart’s hunger.

Place me under the shelter of your wings,

that I may live securely in your presence.

This prayer I make in Jesus’ name. Amen.
