A Prayer for Peace of Mind
by St. Frances Xavier Cabrini

Fortify me with the grace
of Your Holy Spirit
and give Your peace to my soul
that I may be free from all needless
anxiety, solicitude and worry.
Help me to desire always that which
is pleasing and acceptable to You
so that Your will may be my will.
