When you or someone you love is feeling overwhelmed by the day-to-day, or lonely or spiritually puny (or want to keep those feelings at bay) remember this Stay with Me, Lord Prayer Pillowcase. Having Saint Padre Pio's heartfelt prayer on your pillowcase makes it easy to look in the right direction and focus on He who loves us most!

St. Pio of Pietrelcina, fondly known as Padre Pio, was a very holy and humble servant of God who touched multitudes with his selfless spiritual encouragement. His life as a Capuchin Franciscan brother wasn't as simple as we might imagine. God blessed him with abundant graces to be sure, but he lived with chronic pain and battled with darkness.

"When your heart especially feels the loneliness of life, pray," Padre Pio once said  (he was always talking about praying!). His prayer, "Stay with me, Lord" gives us the words to talk to God when we're feeling particularly vulnerable.

Personalize it for a caring gift of faith.

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.
