October 26, 2020: A Prayer for COVID Relief

As the COVID-19 pandemic stretches on into the autumn months, let us reflect on our trust in God.

 

PROTECT. PRAY. HEAL.

Loving God, Source of all Creation, we praise and thank you for the life you give each of us. 

Teach us to treasure this sacred trust.

In this difficult and challenging time for our world, we ask that you open our eyes to the needs of those around us, especially those who have no one to care for them.

Protect us from fear and anxiety that sometimes forces us to care only for ourselves and not others.

Help us to realize that all people are your special creations and help us to cherish and respect them and help us to respect our Mother Earth, our universal home.

Confirm in us our power to do good so that we are instruments of your peace in our troubled world.  Help us to bring about the peace you so desire for all humankind. 

We pray all this with great trust, placing our lives in your hands. May Mary our Mother present our needs to your loving care now and always.
