CORONA VIRUS PRAYER.
Lord Jesus Christ, during your earthly ministry, at your command, the sick were made well. Come to our aid now in the midst of the global pandemic, that we may experience your healing love.
Give leaders of nations and communities 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.
Grant health, strength and courage to doctors, nurses and all healthcare workers, and to all peoples the grace to respect the measures suggested that may curtail the spread of this virus. We ask this in your Holy name. Amen.
