People Are Freaking Out

People Are Freaking Out

Things are pretty crazy right now and a lot of people are afraid. I have to say that I never thought I would experience anything like this in my lifetime, but here we are. I would be lying if I didn’t admit I was a little apprehensive about the situation, but I think that is a natural reaction. I need to place my trust in God and pray for the safety and well being of my family and friends and the whole world. The only way I know how to do that is through prayer. Those people who know God need to join together in prayer for those who do not know God. Litanies and chaplets are prayers where a soul pleads for heavenly help. They are my favorite types of prayer because they are easy to pray and filled with hope, which is something we all need right now. So I will post prayers that bring me comfort, and elevate my heart and mind to God, who is the Healer and Savior of all people.    

The following litany is a bit lengthy but I think it is important to start with the Holy Trinity.


“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.”

Psalm 46:1
