HOLY LAND - Please find below the prayer of this week prepared by the Little Sisters of Jesus- Hebrew speaking community in Jerusalem, in which they ask God for the strength of the Holy Spirit and the gift of Hope in these troubling times.
“Blessed are you, Lord, for this ‘favorable time’ that you give us. We ask You to give us the strength of Your Holy Spirit so as to be reconciled with You, with all those who surround us and we ask You for the gift of Hope in this time of uncertainty, of fragility, of poverty, linked to the pandemic. Blessed are You, Lord, who hears our prayers.”
The Religious Families of the Holy Land, in collaboration with the Pastoral Office of the Latin Patriarchate, share a weekly prayer with the faithful that tackles a pertinent theme. The intention can be included in the prayer of the faithful (also in Vespers or Lauds).
