Dear Loving God our Father, Merciful Jesus our Brother, Holy Mother Mary, our world is in such turmoil. The sufferings of your children are great, their diseases of body, the persecutions that sicken the heart and soul, seem insurmountable. We pray to you that our missionary Sisters and Nuns do not succumb to the despair of the people so desperately in need of their strength. We pray they do not fall victim to the same diseases of body and fear in their hearts that surrounds them in their service as your hands — your presence in our stricken world. Lord we pray for the protection of their souls, the strength of their minds, and continued courage in their hearts. Amen.
