5. Rest in the surety that “all shall be well”
The medieval English anchoress known as Julian of Norwich came through the gates of death – experienced as a dreadful illness and depression – with a vision of the true reality of God’s everlasting love. Repeating this prayer based on her writings can be a means of comfort in any fear or anxiety.
Prayer for Comfort (based on the writings of St Julian of Norwich)
God, you are my help and comfort; you shelter and surround me in love so tender that I may know your presence with me, now and always. Amen.
