O God, we come to you in our need to ask for your protection against the virus that has claimed lives and has so affected many. We pray for your wisdom for the people tasked with studying the nature and cause of this virus, and of stemming the tide of transmission. Guide the hands and minds of medical experts that they may minister to the sick with competence and compassion, and of those governments and private agencies that must find a cure and solution for this pandemic. We pray for those afflicted. May they be restored to health. We pray for those who have lost their lives and for their devastated families. May you comfort them in this darkest valley. Grant us the grace and the will to work for the good of all and to help those in need. We offer all of this in the name of your precious son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
