Prayer for intercession of St Edmund
Father in Heaven have mercy on us and on the whole world. We come to you today with our fears and concerns, you know all that is in our hearts. We love You, trust You, we need You. We ask You to be with us. Stay with us. Help us through these times of uncertainty and sorrow.
We know you are the Divine Physician, the healer of all. And so, we ask that you bring your loving and healing presence to all those who are sick and suffering. Comfort them. Be with the grieving families of those who have passed away. Have mercy on those who have died, may they be with You in heaven. Stand at the side of all medical professionals who are putting themselves at risk while they work to bring healing to others.
Lord, we are fearful, we are sorrowful. Bring us your grace to heal us. Send us your peace and overwhelming presence. We pray during this present crisis for all affected by coronavirus throughout the world.
We ask the Fourteen Holy Helpers, those who lived during the time of the plague, to pray for us and all who are at-risk. Jesus, we thirst for You. You chose to enter this world as a vulnerable baby. Be with the most vulnerable now. Help us to continue to return to You with our whole hearts throughout this ordeal. Amen.
Prayer of St Edmund
O Lord, into Your hands and into the hands of Your holy angels, this day I entrust my soul, my relatives, my benefactors, my friends and enemies, and all Your Catholic people.
O Lord, by the merits and prayers of the Blessed Virgin Mary and of all Your saints,
keep us today from all evil and unruly desires, from all sins and temptations of the devil, from a sudden and unprovided death, and from the pains of hell.
Enlighten my heart with the grace of Your Holy Spirit. Grant that I may ever be obedient to Your commandments.
Let me never be separated from You, O Jesus, who live and reign with God the Father and the same Holy Spirit forever.
