Our Parish Prays Together

Daily Prayer as a Parish Community

Join your sisters and brothers at Our Lady of Good Counsel as we unite our hearts and minds in prayer three times each day – morning as you rise, at noon, and in the evening as you prepare to close your day.


  COVID-19: A PRAYER OF SOLIDARITY (US Catholic Bishops)

For all who have contracted coronavirus,
     We pray for care and healing.

For those who are particularly vulnerable,
     We pray for safety and protection.

For all who experience fear or anxiety,
     We pray for peace of mind and spirit.

For affected families who are facing difficult decisions
  between food on the table or public safety,
     We pray for policies that recognize their plight.

For those who do not have adequate health insurance,
     We pray that no family will face financial burdens alone.

For those who are afraid to access care due to immigration status,
     We pray for recognition of the God-given dignity of all.

For our brothers and sisters around the world,
     We pray for shared solidarity.

For public officials and decisionmakers,
     We pray for wisdom and guidance.

Father, during this time may your Church be a sign of hope, comfort and love to all.
     Grant peace.
     Grant comfort.
     Grant healing.
     Be with us, Lord.   Amen.

V. The Angel of the Lord declared unto Mary.
R. And she conceived of the Holy Spirit.

Hail, Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.

V. Behold the handmaid of the Lord.
R. Be it done unto me according to thy word.

Hail Mary...

V. And the Word was made flesh.
R. And dwelt among us.

Hail Mary...

V. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God.
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let us pray:
Pour forth, we beseech thee, O Lord, thy grace into our hearts;
that we, to whom the Incarnation of Christ, thy Son,
was made known by the message of an angel,
may by his Passion and Cross be brought
to the glory of his Resurrection.
Through the same Christ, our Lord.  Amen.

Lord Jesus,
You traveled through towns and villages
curing every disease and illness among the people. 
At your command, the sick were made well.
Come to our aid now in this health crisis so that we may know your healing love.
Heal those who are sick: 
may they regain their health and strength.
Heal us from our fear, 
which prevents us from helping one another.
Heal us from our pride, 
which makes us certain of our health and life apart from you.
Bless health care professionals with strength and compassion as they selflessly respond to our needs.
We make this prayer in your strong and holy name,
You, who with the Father and Spirit,
live and reign for ever and ever.   Amen.
