Prayer in Time of Pandemic

Lord Jesus,
You came to bring salvation to our world.
You humbled yourself to accept death on a cross.
Be with us as we confront the spread of the coronavirus with courage and hope.
Be present to the sick and to those who accompany them in their suffering.
Strengthen our medical professionals and caregivers;
comfort families who are separated from one another.
Protect those who are at risk of the virus in their work.
Grant wisdom to our civic officials and perseverance to scientists.
Spare us from the ravages of this illness and console us in our uncertainty and fear.
Unite us in hope, enlighten us in faith,
and give us the grace as a Church to love one another as You have loved us.
Through the intercession of our Heavenly Mother,
we make this prayer as we place our trust in You.
Amen.
