Prayer for those affected by Coronavirus (Covid 19)
Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy.
Sustain and support the anxious,
be with those who care for the sick,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may find comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us
from your love in Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen.
(Church of England)
Prayer for people at higher risk of developing the disease.
Dear Lord, we lift to you
our concern for people
who are more likely than others
to become severely ill from COVID-19 —
the elderly and people with chronic health conditions.
Protect them from harm
and be their comfort in this time of uncertainty. Amen.
Prayer for medical professionals, caregivers, researchers, and leaders responsible for decisions about fighting the new coronavirus.
Father, we seek your wisdom daily.
Be with people making decisions
that affect the lives and futures
of our families, communities, countries,
and the wider world.
Inspire and invigorate people
developing better tests to diagnose the virus,
vaccines to prevent it, and protocols
and communication to eliminate the disease’s spread.
May truth and empathy be the touchstones
of people setting policies for our protection.
