Corona Virus Prayer

Prayer in time of Coronavirus

Jesus Christ, you travelled through towns and villages "curing every disease ànd illness." At your command, the sick were made well.  Come to our aid now, in the midst of the global spread of coronavirus, that we may expreience your healing love.

Heal those who are sick with virus

Heal us from our fear, which can prevent nations from working together and neighbours from helping one another. Guide world leaders to act for the common good.

Heal us from our pride, which can make us claim invulnerability to a disease that knows no borders.

Be with doctors, nurses, researchers and all medical professionals who seek to heal and help those affected and who put themselves at risk in the process.  May they know your protection and peace.

Be with the families of those who are sick or have died. As they worry or grieve, defend them from illness and despair. May they know your peace.

Be with those who have died from the virus. May they be at rest with you in your eternal peace.

Whether we are at home or abroad, surrounded by many people suffering from this illness or only a few, Jesus Christ stay with us as we endure and mourn, persist and prepare. In place of our annoyance, confusion, or anxiety, give us your peace.
