Prayer for May 3
Tenacity, Wisdom, Strength, Courage
In this moment of suffering for the world
We are alone and far away but more united than before
On the alert against an invisible enemy
Deprived of our precious freedom
But the highest good is LIFE
Our own and that of the weakest
We cannot be saved on our own
We lift up to you, O Lord, our hymn
As did our soldiers in the trenches
Praying for their companions
For their loved ones and for those who cared for them.
To you we entrust those who
Find themselves on the front lines
Those who have left us
Without having been able to grasp the hand of a dear one
Those who are suffering, are fighting, and are hoping
Grant TENACITY to those who every day are striving to save lives
Grant WISDOM to those who need to make decisions
Grant STRENGTH to those who can help
Grant COURAGE to those who can bring comfort
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.
