Prayer for Living Alone

My friend gave me this prayer for those of us who are living alone. 

I live alone, Dear Lord,
Stay by my side,
In all my daily needs
Be Thou my guide.
Grant me good health,
For that indeed, I pray,
To carry on my work
From day to day.
Keep pure my mind,
My thoughts, my every deed,
Let me be kind, unselfish
In my neighbor's need.
Spare me from fire, from flood
Malicious tongue,
From thieves, from fear,
And evil ones.
If sickness or an accident befall,
Then humbly, Lord, I pray,
Hear, Thou my call,
And when I am feeling low,
Or in despair,
Lift up my heart
And help me in my prayer,
I live alone, Dear Lord,
Yet have no fear,
Because I feel Your presence
Ever near.
