O thou who art everywhere, be thou within to strengthen us. Grant us the knowledge that however dark or desolate the hour, we are not alone, for thou art with us; thy rod and thy staff, they comfort us. Lord when nobody seems to care, help us to understand that you care. You are the Savior of this world. Save us from ourselves. Amen.
