A Prayer for the Coronavirus Crisis
Let us pray.
Loving and faithful God, the coronavirus reminds us that we have no power and we are dependent on you. We place ourselves in your loving hands. Give eternal rest to all who have died from the virus. Place your healing hand on those who are ill, and give your protection to us in this time of fear and uncertainty. Calm our fears and help us to trust you as our faithful God. Enlighten our government and Church leaders as they are faced with important decisions. Give blessing to those in health care and protect them.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Our Lady of Prompt Succor, hasten to help us.
Blessed Francis Seelos, pray for us. (His life was taken while caring for the sick in the yellow fever epidemic.)
