Jesus Christ, you traveled through towns and villages 'curing every disease and illness.’ At your command, the sick were made well. Come now to our aid, during this global spread of the coronavirus, that we may experience your healing love.
Heal those who are sick with the virus and help them regain their health. Heal us from our fear, which prevents neighbors from working together.
Stay by our side in this time of uncertainty. Be with those who are sick or have died from the virus and their families. Defend them from illness and despair. May they know your peace.
Be with the doctors, nurses, and medical professionals who seek to heal those affected and who put themselves at risk. May they know your divine protection and peace.
Be with the leaders of countries. Give them the grace to act with concern for the people. Give them the wisdom to support solutions to the crisis. May they know your peace, as they work together to achieve it on earth.
Jesus Christ, stay with us as we endure, mourn, persist and prepare. In place of our anxiety, give us your peace. Hear us and heal us.
