Traditional Prayers for Anglican Catholics

For Protection

Our God,
may we lay hold of thy Cross,
as of a staff that can stand unshaken
when the floods run high.
It is this world and not another,
this world with all its miseries
- its ruin and its sin -
that thou hast entered to redeem
by thine agony and bloody sweat. Amen.

Henry Scott Holland (1847-1918)
