Prayer in Time of Tragedy

Lord, we pray for those who have been devastated by recent tragedies. We remember those who have lost their lives so suddenly. We hold in our hearts the families forever changed by grief and loss. Bring them consolation and comfort. Surround them with our prayers for strength. Bless those who have survived and heal their memories of trauma and devastation. May they have the courage to face the days ahead.

Help us to respond with generosity in prayer, in assistance, and in comfort to the best of our abilities. Keep our hearts focused on the needs of all the community. We ask this in Jesus’ name.  Amen.

As We Await Our New Bishop

Please join us in prayer for our diocese and the selection of our new Bishop.
Almighty God, Eternal shepherd and guide, in your love for us,
Grant to the Diocese of Richmond a shepherd who will lead us
To be Christ’s heart of mercy, voice of hope, and hands of justice.
Help him to fill our minds and hearts with the truth of the Gospel,
The power of the sacraments, and the desire to build up your holy Church.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
