Loving God, Your Son, Jesus Christ, traveled through towns and villages “curing every disease and illness.” At His command the sick were made well.

Come to our aid now, God of all life.

Heal those who are sick with the virus. May they regain their strength and health.

Be with those who have died from the virus. Be with the families of those who are sick or have died. Defend them from illness and despair.

Be with the doctors, nurses, researchers, first responders, essential workers, and all who seek to heal, serve, and help those affected. 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.

Jesus Christ, stay with us. In place of our anxiety, give us your peace, comfort, and love.

Gentle and Loving God, heal us and come to our aid.
