SPIRITUAL COMMUNION PRAYER
Lord Jesus I cannot receive you Sacramentally
at this time but I ask you to come into my heart and soul to
be with me.
May your loving Presence in me bring your love to all through
my words and actions, Amen.
A PRAYER FOR THOSE
OF US WHO LIVE ON OUR OWN
Lord, I live on my own but I remember
you are with me. Sometimes I am content but sometimes I would
like some company so in those moments help me to remember you
are with me. There are days when it would be good to see a family
member or friend but in this time of isolation it's not possible
to meet in person. Help me to remember you are with me. I want
to think of everyone else in the parish and in the world who live
on their own. Thinking of everyone else who lives like me makes
us into a community. Help me and all of us to remember you are
with me. Amen
A PRAYER FOR EACH OTHER
Lord, as parishioners of St. Joan’s we
think of our parish family at this time. Bless everyone in our
parish, we look forward to being together in our Church building
once again to worship you. We are kept together through our prayers
for each other and through our love for each other.
Bless everyone on the frontlines of dealing with this virus. Keep
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
God bless us all

Prayer for our local hospitals
Lord, bless all those who work in our local
hospitals and who work in our Hospice. At this time when no one
is allowed to visit in hospital we ask you to bless the hospital
chaplains who can, from a distance, say hello to all the patients.
Help them to bring encouragement to patients and staff alike.
Through our prayers for them may patients, staff, chaplains and
volunteers in our hospitals and hospice know that they are being
remembered by us. Through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
