Covid-19: A Prayer of Solidarity

For all who have contracted coronavirus, we pray for care and healing.  For those who are particularly vulnerable, we pray for safety and protection.  For all who experience fear or anxiety, we pray for peace of mind and spirit.  For affected families who are facing difficult decisions between food on the table or public safety, we pray for policies that recognize their plight. For those who do not have adequate health insurance, we pray that no family will face financial burdens alone.  For those who are afraid to access care due to immigration status, we pray for recognition of the God-given dignity of all.  For our brothers and sisters around the world, we pray for shared solidarity.  For public officials and decision makers, we pray for wisdom and guidance.

Father, during this time may your Church be a sign of hope, comfort and love to all.

Grant peace. Grant comfort. Grant healing. Be with us, Lord.  Amen.

 

Prayer of Spiritual Communion:

My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the most Blessed Sacrament. I love You above all things and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there, and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
