At a time like this, the prayer, “hearken to our prayer
and attend to the sound of our pleading
”, is most appropriate. 
We are praying that we be relieved of the effects
of the pandemic and the stress it has caused. 
We are pleading for Your healing presence in the lives
of all of us especially those who have sacrificed
so much by their service to the suffering.

Amen.

— By a Columban Missionary
