Dealing with COVID-19

We pray for those sheltering at home:Gracious Father in heaven, Your Son went the way of death, resurrection, and ascension in order to prepare for us a place in your eternal home. Our homes have now become a shelter in this viral storm, and yet they feel like a prison at times . Sanctify our homes, we pray, and all who dwell in them. Protect them from the snares and deceits of the evil one. Stir up in us a deeper affection for one another, and manifest in us the fruit of the Spirit who dwells among and within us - love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-discipline. Make our homes dwelling places of your Word, little monasteries of devotion, prayer, and common life together. We thank you for the science and technology that have enabled us to talk to each other even as we shelter in place. The instruments that once threatened to drive us apart now enable us to reassure and comfort our friends, family, and neighbors. Remind us all that we are but pilgrims and travelers here, and that our true home and shelter is with You in your Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord. Hear us we pray, for His Name’s sake. Amen.

We pray for the most vulnerable among us.
Gracious Father in heaven, Your Son taught us that as we serve the least among us, we serve Him in cognito. We pray for the most vulnerable in our communities - our elderly, our sick, those who live in the streets and in tents, those who are isolated. Forgive us, when we have forgotten them in our haste to fill our own cupboards. As Your compassionate heart is turned toward the poor, the widowed, the least, the lost, and the lowly, turn our hearts toward them too, and make us instruments of Your goodness. Teach us to see Christ in our neighbor in need. Hear us, in the Name of Jesus Christ, your Son our Lord, who by His poverty, weakness, and death won life for all. Amen.
