SIMPLE PRAYER SUGGESTIONS

As an individual or as a family, if you cannot get to Mass on a weekend or during the week (or even if you can!), take a little time to read through the Scripture readings of the day. Various publications, apps or websites can give you these. Then spend a few minutes reflecting upon them with some questions in mind: What is the message in the reading? Do I live up to the message? What resolution can I make to live the message better?

Then offer some prayers and petitions. If you are praying as a family, perhaps go around the family group, so that each person can say a prayer about what is on their mind or in their heart. Articulating and speaking out aloud our concerns and joys is a great way of praying! Finish by praying the Our Father or the Hail Mary together.

• Perhaps you know someone who lives alone (for example, an elderly neighbor or friend). Why not phone them just to chat and to check that they are OK. You might even pray with them or promise to remember them in your prayers. Prayer & charity go together!

• If you have an area you can use in your home, you could set up some sort of prayer space. We are very visual and we pray with our bodies, so designating a special place in the home can be very helpful when it comes to praying.

• Do not forget all the various Catholic devotions that we have: the rosary, Stations of the Cross, Divine Mercy chaplet and all sorts of prayers. If you do not have the books at home, these are easily accessed online or through a number of Catholic prayer apps.

• You might want to explore saying what is called “the Divine Office” or the prayer of the Church. This is recited by many religious and ordained every day, as well as by many lay people. The Divine Office is offered up for the whole Church and for the world, but it is also a wonderful treasury of prayers, psalms, Scripture readings etc. You can access the daily office online or via various apps such as ibreviary.

Sample Intercessions from the U.S. Catholic Conference of Bishops (USCCB)

• For those who are suffering in the current outbreak of sickness that they may be healed, and for the happy repose of all who have died from this sickness in recent weeks.

• For scientists, health professionals, public officials, and all who are serving the common good in this difficult and uncertain time, that they will be filled with wisdom and understanding.

• That in times of illness, our merciful and loving Father will strengthen our faith and trust in his goodness and divine providence.

• That our compassionate Father would touch all affected by the current outbreak with healing and peace.
