Tuesday’s Prayer for Sisters and Nuns

Image morguefile.com

This prayer is for those who feel the burden of our times, which includes our Sisters and Nuns. It was shared by Fr. Mike, the priest at Saints Cornelius & Cyprian Church, a small parish in farm country where I usually attend daily Mass.

O God, we pray this day: for all who have a song they cannot sing, for all who have a burden they cannot bear, for all who live in chains they cannot break, for all who wander homeless and cannot return, for those who are sick and for those who tend them, for those who wait for loved ones and wait in vain, for those who live in hunger and for those who will not share their bread, for those who are misunderstood and for those who misunderstand, for those who are captives and for those who are captors, for those whose words of love are locked within their hearts and for those who yearn to hear those words. Have mercy upon these, O God, have mercy upon us all.

~Ann Weems, in Nancy Corcoran, SSJ, Secrets of Prayer.
