Fr. Clement Sheptytsky Prayer

Fr. Clement Sheptytsky was the brother of the late Metropolitan Andrey Sheptytsky. His prayer was passed to me in 1967 and I have prayed this prayer everyday since then. I love it as it covers my daily needs and it teaches me as I pray the words. When I embrace and meditate on the words, I feel strengthened in my faith and understanding and love for God. I am grateful for this prayer. May you also be blessed when you pray the following words:

Lord, grant that I may meet the coming day with spiritual tranquility.
Grant that in all things I may rely upon your holy will.
In each hour of the day, reveal your will to me.
Whatever news may reach me this day, teach me to accept it with a calm soul, knowing that all is subject to your holy will.
Direct my thoughts and feelings in all my words and actions.
In all unexpected occurrences, do not let me forget that all is sent down by you.
Grant that I may deal firmly and wisely with every member of my family and all who are in my care, neither embarrassing nor saddening anyone.
Give me strength to bear the fatigue of the coming day with all that it shall bring.
Direct my will and teach me to pray, to believe, to hope, to be patient, to forgive, and to love.
