Prayer For Spiritual Communion
I believe 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.
Prayer For A Pandemic
May we that are merely inconvenienced remember those whose lives are at stake.
May those who have no risk factors remember those most vulnerable.
May we who have luxury of working from home
Remember those who must choose between preserving their health or making rent.
May we who have the flexibility to care for our children when their schools close,
Remember those who have no options.
May we who have to cancel our trips remember those that have no safe place to go.
May we who are losing our margin money in the tumult of the economic market
Remember those who have no margin at all.
May we who settle in for quarantine at home remember those that have no home.
As fear grips our country, let us chose love.
During this time when we cannot physically wrap our arms around each other,
Let us yet find ways to be the loving embrace of God to our neighbors.
