Prayer in A Time of Pandemic

In all the places where Brigidine Sisters live and work, we invite others to join us in prayer during this time of pandemic.

Loving God, our world seems more and more chaotic every week. At times we feel alone or bombarded by news and statistics. Sometimes we feel apprehensive and afraid, sensing that nothing will be the same again. Help us each day to open our hearts and minds to your peace.

In all these moments, you are with us and your love is surrounding us and our world. Help us to remember that you will never leave us. Give us the strength and gentleness we need to reach out to others, to share our feelings and fears and to listen to theirs. Together may we find calm in knowing that we are your people and you gift us with all we need.

At all times, give us wisdom to always give thanks for our many gifts in life. May our sense of gratitude overcome any fears that threatens us in these challenging times.

Brigid of Kildare, wise woman of peace, inspire us to remain trusting and grateful. Amen
