Heavenly Father, we pray that thou wouldst come and care for those who are in danger and uncertainty at the present time.
To people who are sick, bring healing.
To people who are displaced, isolated from family, friends or work, bring comfort and companionship.
When communities are fearful, give a calm spirit.
Guide the medical staff, we pray, as they care for the sick and elderly, and protect them from harm.
Give skill and insight to those who search for treatments, prevention and a cure.
To public health authorities give wisdom to manage both this difficult time and our anxieties.
And through this time of danger, help us to love and support one another as you have loved us.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
