THE COVID 19 PRAYER 


God of Love, 

we make our prayers through Christ the Healer. 

for those of us in Ireland

and the thousands in our world

who are suffering from the Coronavirus.


Bring calm to those who are anxious.

Bring courage to those who help others. 

Bring comfort to those bereaved

because a loved one has died

through the Covid 19 disease.


Give wisdom to our leaders, 

support to healthcare workers

and fortitude to us all. 


May our communion with Christ in prayer

bring us serenity 

in these days of uncertainty and distress.

This we ask

in the name of Jesus our Lord and brother. Amen.

UNBIND HIM! LET HIM GO FREE!

 

And wasn't it Martha who fussed and worried

about so many things? 

And Mary it was, who - in contemplation -

seemed to have made the wiser choice?


Yet when their beloved Lazarus died,

Martha met the Lord

and professed the resurrection

while Mary waited on His arrival

to admonish and even blame His absence

for her brother's death.


God who made the blind to see,

the lame to walk,

be with me in my weakness. 

Help me hear Your call

to unbind others and let them go free;

that I might trust Your presence

even and especially when

it is Your absence that I feel.  


In days of fear,

be my companion on the road. 

In nights of terror,

be the whisper that reassures.

In time of isolation,

be the gentle light

leading me kindly on.

Amen 



(Sr Perpetua)
