Prayer of St. Bridget of Sweden

St. Bridget of Sweden
Prayer of St. Bridget of Sweden

O Lord, make haste and illumine the night.
Say to my soul
that nothing happens without Your permitting it, and that nothing of what You permit is without comfort.

O Jesus, Son of God,
You Who were silent in the presence of Your accusers, restrain my tongue until I find what I should say and how to say it.
Show me the way and make me ready to follow it.

It is dangerous to delay, yet perilous to go forward.
Answer my petition and show me the way.

I come to You as the wounded go to the doctor in search of aid.
Give peace, O Lord, to my heart.
