A Prayer of Padre Pio

Stay with me, Lord, for it is necessary to have You present so that I do not forget You. You know how easily I abandon You.

Stay with me Lord, because I am weak, and I need Your strength, so that I may not fall so often.

Stay with me Lord, for You are my life, and without You, I am without fervor.

Stay with me Lord, for You are my light, and without you, I am in darkness.

Stay with me Lord, to show me Your will.

Stay with me Lord, so that I hear Your voice and follow You.

Stay with me Lord, for I desire to love you very much, and always be in Your Company.

Stay with me Lord, if You wish me to be faithful to You.

Stay with me Lord, for as poor as my soul is, I want it to be a place of consolation for You, a nest of Love.

Stay with me, Jesus, for it is getting late, and the day
is coming to a close, and life passes, death, judgment, eternity
approach. It is necessary to renew my strength, so that I will not stop
along the way and for that, I need You. It is getting late and death
approaches. I fear the darkness, the temptations, the dryness, the
cross, the sorrows. O how I need You, my Jesus, in this night of exile.

Stay with me tonight, Jesus, in life with all its dangers, I need You.

Let me recognize You as Your disciples did at the breaking
of bread, so that the Eucharistic Communion be the light which
disperses the darkness, the force which sustains me, the unique joy of
my heart.

Stay with me Lord, because at the hour of my death, I want
to remain united to you, if not by Communion, at least by grace and

Stay with me Jesus, I do not ask for divine consolation
because I do not merit it, but the gift of Your presence, oh yes, I ask
this of You.

Stay with me Lord, for it is You alone I look for, Your
Love, Your Grace, Your Will, Your Heart, Your Spirit, because I love You
and ask no other reward but to love You more and more.

With a firm love, I will love You with all my heart while
on earth and continue to love You perfectly during all eternity. Amen.
