A Prayer for Those Who Live Alone

I live alone, dear Lord, Stay by my side.

In all my daily needs Be Thou my guide.

Grant me good health for that, indeed, I pray.

To carry on my work from day to day.

Keep pure my mind.

My thoughts, my every deed.

Let me be kind, unselfish

In my neighbor’s need.

Spare me from fire, from flood.

Malicious tongues.

From thieves, from fear,

And evil ones.

If in sickness or an accident befall

Then humbly, Lord, I pray

Hear thou my call.

And when I’m feeling low

Or in despair,

Lift up my heart

And help me in my prayer.

I live alone, dear Lord,

Yet have no fear.

Because I feel Your Presence

Ever near.
