4 September 1989, Vassula prays:
In times of persecution
In You my soul takes warm shelter,
until the raging storm ceases again.
I tend my ear towards Heaven
to listen to Your Tender Voice, ever so consoling.
I need not fear, beside me Your Holy Presence consoles me,
there is no one who can replace Your Faithfulness,
You are my Master now,
The Highest, the Lord of Lords, my Redeemer,
and so I fully abandon myself to You,
my soul and my heart I commit into Your Divine Hands.
