A Prayer During the Coronavirus

Lord our God, have mercy on, heal and help those who are afflicted with the coronavirus and comfort and strengthen their families. Have mercy and keep safe our vulnerable populations – the elderly, those with compromised health, the poor and the uninsured. Give strength and protection to all our doctors, nurses and health workers, and to all those who need to engage with the people. Grant wisdom and discernment to our civic authorities and our church leaders to guide and comfort the people. Bless and enlighten our scientific and medical communities in their sacred work. Enlighten the media to communicate news in a sober yet accurate manner, without creating panic or chaos. Protect those who must travel. Lord, look down upon Your worldwide community and have mercy upon us all. Through this crisis, may we turn to You, discover You anew, and dwell in Your “peace that transcends all understanding.” Into Your hands, Christ our God, we commit our lives and the world around us. Amen.
