Prayer for April 16
Prayer to Stop the Spread
Almighty God, we know that everything is in Your sovereign control.
We ask that You keep this new coronavirus from continuing to spread.
Give government officials the ability to safely handle people arriving from other countries.
Help people decide to stay home instead of traveling or going out needlessly.
Holy Spirit, remind people to wash their hands properly.
And while it may be heartbreaking, comfort families as they decide to keep their distance from elderly or other high-risk family members.
The Sisters of St. Agnes have always practiced the directive in their Constitutions which states, "we remember in our prayers the needs of the universal church and all peoples, living and dead."
The daily ministry of our retired sisters includes offering prayer and suffering for the intentions of others and they invite viewers to submit their petitions.
