Cardinal Cupich Requests Prayer

Cardinal Cupich Requests Prayer Five Times Each Day


Cardinal Cupich is requesting that all of us pray (from home or wherever we might be) five times a day at the times designated below.  A short, specific prayer is included with each of the five prayer times.  Uniting ourselves in prayer as a Parish Family and as members of the larger, Global Family and praying for the many who are directly impactedby the coronavirus is a sure way we can rely on the power of Almighty God to bring this pandemic to a speedy end.

  9:00 a.m. - Prayer for those infected with the virus and all who are ill

  Lord, place your healing hand on those who suffer illness. Bring them to full health and ease their anxious hearts.  May our prayer and the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary encourage them that they are not alone. We ask this in Jesus’ Name. AMEN

  12:00 p.m. - Prayer for health care workers and those attending to the sick

  Lord, we are ennobled by those who put their lives at risk in caring for the sick. Keep them safe and embolden them when they are weary. We ask this in Jesus’ Name. AMEN

  3:00 p.m. - Prayer for first responders and essential workers

  Lord, we pray for those who run to danger to keep us safe and those who serve the common good. Embrace them with your mantle of protection and comfort the fears of their families. We ask this in Jesus’ Name. AMEN

  6:00 p.m. - Prayer for people of every nation and their leaders

  Lord, the pandemic opens our eyes to see each other as brothers and sisters in one human family. We pray for people of every nation and their leaders, asking that they be inspired to seek the good of all and quell the voices of division. We ask this in Jesus’ Name. AMEN

  9:00 p.m. - Prayer for those who have died today

  Lord, we grieve the passing of our sisters and brothers who have died this day. We commend them to your tender mercy, confident that nothing, not even death, will separate us from your love. We ask this in Jesus’ Name. AMEN
