Creating God, you give us angels to know your saving presence. Remembering your goodness we pray: Guard us from harm, O God.  

Protect the homeless, travelers, and the elderly.  

     Guard us from harm, O God.  

Prosper the work of emergency-assistance workers, first responders, and essential workers.  

     Guard us from harm, O God.  

Bring an end to the pandemic, and guide the distribution and administration of the vaccine.  

     Guard us from harm, O God.  

Our Father . . .  

May God send angels to watch over and guide us now and always. Amen.
