A Prayer During the COVID-19 Pandemic
They cried to the Lord in their trouble,
And he saved them from their distress;
He sent out his word and healed them,
And delivered them from destruction.
Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love,
For his wonderful works to humankind.
– Psalm 107:19-21
I pray for all who have become sick
or died by the coronavirus
that has been spreading around the world.
In your mercy and compassion,
deliver us from this disease,
In your holy wisdom,
guide all who are working to contain the outbreak,
In your steadfast love,
bring healing to all your children who have become sick,
Welcome into your arms the ones that died,
Comfort the ones they left behind.
In faith, I place my trust in you.
In hope, I turn to you in my time of need.
In love, I give glory to your name.
In gratitude, I will praise you with my life.
In your Son’s name I pray.
