A PRAYER FOR OUR TIME
In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen. O God Almighty, Lord of heaven and earth, and of all creation visible and invisible, in your ineffable goodness, look down upon us, your people gathered in your Holy Name. Be our helper and defender in this day of affliction. You know our weakness. You hear our cry in repentance and contrition of heart. O Lord, who loves humankind, deliver us from the impending threat of the Corona Virus. Send your angel to watch over us and protect us. Grant health and recovery to those suffering from the virus. Guide the hands of physicians, and preserve those who are healthy. Enable us to continue to serve our suffering brothers and sisters in peace, that together we may glorify your most honorable and majestic name: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, now and ever and unto ages of ages.
St. Jacob Netsvetov 1802 – 1864
Holy Father Jacob,
Teacher of the knowledge of God,
You revealed your love for your people, taking up your cross and following Christ,
Enduring hardships like the Apostle Paul.
Pray on our behalf to Christ our God to grant us great mercy!
