Prayer during this coronavirus pandemic

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

Heal those who are sick with the virus. May they regain their strength and health through quality medical care. Heal us from our fear. Stay by our side in this time of uncertainty and sorrow. Be with the families of those who are sick or have died. As they worry and grieve, protect them from illness and despair. May they know your deep peace.

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

Be with the leaders of so many countries as they make difficult decisions for the greater good. Be with us in our homes as we try to keep safe. Soothe our worried minds and keep us calm. Protect us and wrap us in your loving care today and everyday. We make our prayer through Christ Our Lord. Amen
