Complete Trust in God Prayer of St. Francis de Sales


Do not look forward to the trials and crosses

of this life with dread and fear.

Rather, look to them with full confidence

that as they arise, God, to whom you belong,

will deliver you from them.

He has guided and guarded you

thus far in life. 

Do you but hold fast to his dear hand, and


He will lead you safely through all trials.

Whenever you cannot stand,

he will carry you lovingly in his arms.


Do not look forward to what may happen tomorrow.

 The same Eternal Father who cares for you today


will take good care of you tomorrow


and every day of your  life. 


Either he will shield you from suffering or


He will give you the unfailing strength to bear it. 

 Be at peace then and put aside all useless thoughts,

vain dreads, and anxious imaginations. 


(St. Francis de Sales)
