Stay with us, Lord, for it is necessary to have you present so that we do not forget you. You know how easily we abandon you.
Stay with us, Lord, because we am weak, and we need your strength, so that we may not fall so often.
Stay with us, Lord, for you are our life, and without you, we are without fervor.
Stay with us, Lord, for you are our light, and without you, we are in darkness.
Stay with us, Lord, to show us your will.
Stay with us, Lord, so that we hear your voice and follow you.
Stay with us, Lord, for we desire to love you very much, and always be in your company.
Stay with us, Lord, if you wish us to be faithful to you.
Stay with us, Lord, for as poor as our souls are, we want them to be a place of consolation for you, a nest of love. Amen.

(Adapted from St. Pio of Pietrelcina, Italy, 20th cent.)
