Benedictine offers a special prayer for National Day of Prayer 2021May 6, 2021
Gracious God of Life and Love, Creator of compassionate communities, the One who heals our loneliness and fear, hear our prayer,
Thank You God, for being our center in these challenging days.
Please heal, strengthen, unify, and guide each of us, our communities, this nation, Your world.
When loneliness, disease, and poverty threaten, counter with healing, restoration, generosity and health.
When fear of the stranger has divided and made us weak, strengthen us in love that welcomes the dignity of difference, lives hospitality, asks for and offers forgiveness, befriends, and helps make things right.
Humble and unite us in Your Spirit, and guide us all along Your path of faith, hope and love.
In Your Holy Name,
