2020 Good Friday/Holy Saturday 

Prayer Vigil Resources

 

Thank you for taking your part in the prayer vigil on this Holy Weekend.  Today we join with the global church in meditating on the sufferings of our Lord Jesus and praying for God to end the pandemic causing so much suffering to people today.  There are 4 Stations of the Prayer Vigil with Scripture passages to guide us on our journey. Take time to read your Bible with each station and reflect on God’s Word. You might want to have a piece of paper with you to reflect on what God is saying to you.  You might find it helpful to pray the Lord’s Prayer slowly to begin. Take your time. Let God speak to you as well. May God bless this time and use it for His glory.

A Prayer to Combat the Coronavirus Pandemic

Most merciful and Triune God,
We come to you in our weakness.
We come to you in our fear.
We come to you with trust.
For you alone are our hope.

We place before you the disease present in our world.
We turn to you in our time of need.

Bring wisdom to doctors.
Give understanding to scientists.
Endow caregivers with compassion and generosity.
Bring healing to those who are ill.
Protect those who are most at risk.
Give comfort to those who have lost a loved one.
Welcome those who have died into your eternal home.

Stabilize our communities.
Unite us in our compassion.
Remove all fear from our hearts.
Fill us with confidence in your care.

Jesus, I trust in you.
Jesus, I trust in you.
Jesus, I trust in you.
Amen.
