A Prayer for These Times
Jesus Christ, you traveled 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, which prevents nations from working
together and neighbors from helping one another. Heal us
from our pride, which can make us claim invulnerability to
a disease that knows no borders.

Jesus Christ, healer of all, stay by our side in this time of
uncertainty and sorrow.

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

Be with the 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 leaders of all nations. Give them the foresight
to act with charity and true concern for the well-being of the
people they are meant to serve. Give them the wisdom to
invest in long-term solutions that will help prepare for or
prevent future outbreaks. May they know your peace, as
they work together to achieve it on earth.

Whether we are 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 anxiety, give us your peace.

Jesus Christ, heal us.
