英語全文

以下是英文禱詞:

O God,
We gather together separated by life-saving distancing,
but united more than ever in spirit;
We know we are in a war against COVID - 19 together,
and the more together we are, the better and stronger we will emerge:
We know the challenges are enormous, yet so are the opportunities;
That whether we are in isolation with loved ones, or alone,
we will have abundance of time;
We commit to using that time to the max,
to help those in greater need in whatever way we can;
We know we all have the opportunity, and time,
to be life savers and life enhancers;
We give thanks for those who are on the front line
taking care of those who are not well;
We give thanks for the researchers
who are working at breakneck speed to find cure and vaccine;
We give thanks for our leaders, federal,
provincial and local, for their dedication to all of us;
We give thanks for the providers of our daily needs
who go to work in spite of the risk;
We give thanks for those who have ramped up their ability
to produce life-saving supplies.
We pray for the well-being of all our life savers;
For those who are not well, that they recover fully;
For those enduring difficulty, that they may overcome their challenges.
We pray that a cure and vaccine will soon be available,
And that we all – family, friends, all Canadians,
the entire world may be healed in body and spirit.
We ask you, O God, to bless our leaders,
our front line care givers, our life savers and life enhancers.
We ask you, O God, to bless Canada, to bless the world, to bless everyone.
Amen.
