A Prayer to Combat the Coronavirus Pandemic

Most Merciful and Triune God,
We come to You in our weakness.
We come to You in our fear.
We come to You with trust.
For You alone are our hope.
We place before You the disease present in our world.
We turn to You in our time of need.
Bring wisdom to doctors.
Give understanding to scientists.
Endow caregivers with compassion and generosity.
Bring healing to those who are ill.
Protect those who are most at risk.
Give comfort to those who have lost a loved one.
Welcome those who have died into Your Eternal Home.
Stabilize our communities.
Unite us in our compassion.
Remove all fear from our hearts.
Fill us with confidence in Your care.
Jesus, I trust in You.
Jesus, I trust in You.
Jesus, I trust in You.
Amen.

Beacons of Light Prayer

Heavenly Father,
From the moment you gave birth to our Church,
through the power of the Holy Spirit,
You have called on your people to be beacons of light to a darkened world.
We ask that you open & calm our minds,
that we may allow the Holy Spirit to guide us as we embark upon the process of forming Your Church for ages to come.
May we open the doors of our hearts and embrace new ways of being Church, so we can continue to be beacons of light for all your people.
We make this prayer through the intercession of Mary, our Mother, and in the name of Your Son, Jesus, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, One God forever and ever.
Amen.

Prayer of Spiritual Communion

My Jesus,
I believe that You are present
in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things,
and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment 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.
