A prayer for humanity

by Guest Contributor

Not only has there been earthquakes in Tukey and Syria, there's been forest fires in Chile and devastating land slides in Peru. We pray for the victims and their families as well as those involved in the clear up operations and those taking care of the sick and injured.

A prayer for humanity

Bless us all, O Lord, we pray,
for loved ones, here and near, and far away.
And everyone for whom we pray.
Keep us safe each night and day,
the homeless who have no place to stay.
Those who are suffering in any way.
The dying, those mourning or grieving
and all who need God's mercy.
Keep us safe, Heavenly Father,
when we are at home,
or travelling on our way,
or when we are vulnerable,
or in danger in any way.
Most merciful Father,
hear us as we pray for the souls in Purgatory,
or who may be sent there some day.
