O God, you know us to be set in the midst of so many and great dangers , that by reason of the fraility of our nature we cannot always stand upright: grant to us such strength and protection as may support us in all dangers and carry us through all temptations: through Jesus Christ our Lord.
God our Father, by whose mercy the world turns safely into darkness and returns again to light: we place in your hands our unfinished tasks, our unsolved problems, and our unfulfilled hopes, knowing that only what you bless will prosper. To your love and protection we commit each other and all those we love, knowing that you alone are our sure defender, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
A prayer for these times
Keep us, good Lord under the shadow of your mercy. Sustain and support the anxious, be with those who care for the sick, and lift up all who are brought low;that we might find comfort knowing that nothing can separate us from your love. In Christ Jesus our Lord.
