Prayer for Time of Affliction



O my God, I beg You, by Your loneliness,
not that You may spare me affliction,
but that You may not abandon me in it.

When I encounter affliction teach me
to see You in it as my sole comforter.

Let affliction strengthen my faith,
fortify my hope, and purify my love.

Grant me the grace to see Your Hand
in my affliction and to desire no
other comforter but You.
