The Sisters of Marian Woods pray daily for all who have been affected by the Coronavirus Pandemic. Please let us know if you have a prayer request by completing a prayer request form.
We will continue to add prayers and reflections to this section of our website in the coming days. The following Prayer for a Pandemic is by Cameron Bellm of Seattle. She has given us permission to share this prayer and thanks us for praying with her:
May we who are merely inconvenienced
Remember those whose lives are at stake.
May we who have no risk factors
Remember those most vulnerable.
May we who have the luxury of working from home
Remember those who must choose between preserving their health or making their rent.
May we who have the flexibility to care for our children when their schools close
Remember those who have no options.
May we who have to cancel our trips
Remember those that have no safe place to go.
May we who are losing our margin money in the tumult of the economic market
Remember those who have no margin at all.
May we who settle in for a quarantine at home
Remember those who have no home.
As fear grips our country,
let us choose love.
During this time when we cannot physically wrap our arms around each other,
Let us yet find ways to be the loving embrace of God to our neighbors.
