Miscellaneous: 31 Mar 2020
NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER - Mar 31st 3pm

Comrades and Friends,

Branch 530 Chaplain, Rev. Dr. Bruce Sweet, will be leading us in Prayer, via the Branch Facebook page,
https://www.facebook.com/groups/RCLWATERLOO
on Tuesday March 31st at 3pm ET. Please join us.

Rabbi Dr. Reuven Bulka, one of our Dominion Honorary Chaplains, has co-composed a National Prayer for Canada in response to the COVID-19 pandemic that the global community is continuing to face.  Working with faith leaders nationwide, he is calling on all Canadians to join in a collective recitation of this prayer on 31 March at 3 pm. 

Well-known for his rousing and motivating Benediction at the National Remembrance Day ceremony each year, Rabbi Bulka’s inspirational words of thanks may be comforting to you in this challenging time of uncertainty and global concern.

Here is the text -

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.
