A Prayer in this Time of COVID-19 Pandemic

O Lord Jesus Christ, the True Physician of Souls and Bodies, in your loving care you preached the Good News and healed every disease and infirmity amongst the people. Come to our aid now in this time of global pandemic.

We lift up to you all those who are sick and suffering. We pray for their families and loved ones who worry.

We pray for the safety of all the medical professionals, doctors, nurses, and first responders who risk their lives to care for their neighbor.  We pray for wisdom for all the medical researchers who seek to develop a vaccine and a cure.

We pray for our government leaders, that they make wise and prudent decisions, and that they would humbly work closely with leaders of all nations. 

We pray for all those who have lost their lives to this illness, may their memories be eternal; and we pray for their loved ones that grieve. 

In our weakness, take away our fears, O Lord.   Teach us to be patient, trusting in you.   Help us to be mindful of our neighbors, especially the most vulnerable.

O Lord, Jesus Christ, you are the True Physician of souls and bodies and the fountain of our healing, and to you we ascribe, glory honor and worship, with the Father who is without beginning and your most Holy and Good Life-Creating Spirit, now and ever and unto ages of ages, Amen.
