The Lord is My Comfort: A Prayer

… Because Thy loving-kindness is better than all lives, behold, my life is but a distraction, and Thy right hand upheld me, in my Lord the Son of man, the Mediator betwixt Thee, The One, and us many, many also through our manifold distractions amid many things, that by Him I may … follow The One, forgetting what is behind, and … not distractedly but intently, I follow on for the prize of my heavenly calling, where I may hear the voice of Thy praise, and contemplate Thy delights, neither to come, nor to pass away. … 

Thou, O Lord, art my comfort, my Father everlasting.”

—Book XI of “The Confessions of St. Augustine”
