Prayers During This Pandemic
Church leaders, including our Archbishop, ask us to pause for prayer at 8 am every Friday.
We are asked to pray for:
* An end to the pandemic
* Healing for people suffering from the illness
* Those researching a vaccine
* Our political and community leaders as they try to provide wise
* Our health workers, as they are at the front line.
Almighty and All–loving God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
We pray to you through Christ the Healer for those who suffer from the Coronavirus Covid–19
in and across the world.
We pray too for all who reach out to those who mourn the loss of each and every person who has died as a result of contracting the disease.
Give wisdom to policymakers, skill to healthcare professionals and researchers, comfort to everyone in distress and a sense of calm to us all in these days of uncertainty and distress.
This we ask in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord,
who showed compassion to the outcast, acceptance to the rejected and love to those to whom no love was shown. Amen.
Archbishop Michael Jackson (Dublin & Glendalough)
