PRAYER IN THE TIME OF PANDEMIC – FR CEDRIC PRAKASH

Father Cedric Prakash | IndiaFactsIndiaFacts

 

We come to you today

dear heavenly and loving Father

as your children, as one family:

with deep faith and a total surrender to your will

 

We come to you today

at a time when our world is gripped with the pandemic COVID-19

It is more than a year now :we are tired, afraid and uncertain

Thousands(including our loved ones) have died everywhere and many more are affected

 

We come to you today

trusting in your loving providence

fully assured that you care for all of us

and that you will protect us from every danger

 

We come to you today

imploring that you heal all those who are affected in any way

that you comfort all those who have lost a loved one

and give the much-needed hope to the faint of heart

 

We come to you today

praying that you bless all the scientists, caregivers and the support staff

those in authority, those entrusted with our well-being

and all who are giving of their best to address this serious reality

 

We come to you today

pleading for the humility to be cautious and prudent

to be responsible citizens and  not gamble with the lives of others

to be able to discern the truth from the false and not be spreaders of fake news or the virus

 

We come to you today

asking for your mercy on the poor ,the vulnerable and the excluded

the daily wage earners, the migrants, the unemployed, the hungry

those who are lonely, aged, infirm and who are unable to cope with this pandemic

 

We come to you today

thanking you for your blessings and seeking your strength

that inspite of all our fears and the difficulties we face

we may only see and accept your hand at work today

 

Mary our Mother, Health of the Sick

intercede for us, to Jesus your loving Son!

                                                                                                                        Amen.
