When experiencing a difficult situation, ask God to be at your side with his shield.
Life can be difficult at times, and when it is, everything hangs in the balance.
It is precisely during such a crisis when we need to turn to God.
Here is a short prayer adapted from the Roman Breviary that asks God to protect you when life gets rough.
Graciously hear our supplications, O Lord, we ask you, and order the goings of your servants in the safe path that leads unto salvation in you, that amidst all the manifold difficulties of this life’s pilgrimage, your shield may never depart from us.
