Spiritual Support during the COVID-19
We know the fight to overcome this pandemic can be daunting. Our hope is that you will remain resilient by caring for yourself. We are here to support you by caring for your spiritual and emotional needs. Please know the chaplains lift each of you up in prayer every day. We pray for those who serve throughout St. Luke's
network of care, for our patients, our visitors, our community, our nation, and our world.
A Prayer from the Director, Network Spiritual Care
God of compassion and healing, you have created and sustained us.
You are the source of the hope we profess.
Your love knows no bounds.
No matter what happens in our lives or in our world--we know you are with us,
you are for us, and you will not let us go.
Pour out your Spirit upon us as we come to you with humble and grateful hearts,
repenting of our sins and seeking to trust and obey your commands and
follow the promptings of your Holy Spirit.
Comfort our hearts, renew our spirits, and grant us rest when we are weary.
Give us strength when we falter, courage when we fear, and hope when we despair.
Heal us, we pray. Amen.
The Rev. Emily Rosencrans
A Blessing adapted from the Episcopal Church Book of Common Worship
...from I Thessalonians 5: 12-23
Go forth into the world in peace, be of good courage,
hold fast to that which is good, render to no one evil for evil,
strengthen the faint-hearted, support the weak, comfort the afflicted,
be patient with everyone, let no one be outcast, let no one be alien,
love and serve the Lord, rejoicing in the power of the Holy Spirit,
and may the blessing of God Almighty, Father, Son and Holy Spirit
be upon you and remain with you always. Amen.
...also from Romans 12: 9-13
Let love be genuine; hate what is evil, hold fast to what is good;
love one another with mutual affection, outdo one another is showing honor.
Be ardent in the Spirit, love and serve the Lord.
Rejoice in hope, be patient in suffering, persevere in prayer.
Contribute to the needs of the saints and show hospitality to strangers.
The Aaronic Blessing
Numbers 6: 24-26
May the Lord bless you and keep you,
May the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you,
May the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace. Amen.
