Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Phil 4:6-7

Unite me to Thyself, 
O adorable Victim. 
Life-giving heavenly Bread,

sanctify me, 
reign in me, 
transform me to Thyself, 
live in me; 
let me live in Thee; 
let me adore Thee in Thy life-giving Sacrament as my God, 
listen to Thee as to my Master, 
obey Thee as my King, 
imitate Thee as my Model, 
follow Thee as my Shepherd, 
love Thee as my Father, 
seek Thee as my Physician 
who wilt heal all the maladies of my soul. 
Be indeed my Way, 
Truth and Life; 
sustain me, 
O heavenly Manna, 
through the desert of this world, 
till I shall behold Thee unveiled in Thy glory.
