During times of uncertainty, words have the power to soothe and heal.


With this in mind, one of our long-term volunteers has shared a touching poem written by her mother Dot Robinson.

Anne Hollis works with SECC as a home visitor, and recently shared this poem with our Volunteer Coordinator Sue Ohanian.

Sue was so impressed and touched, she asked Anne if her mother would give permission for us to share it with others.

My prayer

When my heart if full of woe

and there is no place to go

on bended knee I seek you Lord

and peace comes to my soul.


When there is no turning back

and courage is the thing I lack

again I seek your comfort Lord

and peace comes to my soul.


You give me strength when things go wrong

when I feel I can’t go on

you comfort and sustain me Lord

Your peace, it floods my soul.


– Dot Robinson


May you be comforted by these words during COVID-19, and always.
