A PRAYER OF PROTECTION FROM CORONAVIRUS
O Lord our God, Who are rich in mercy and with careful wisdom direct our lives, hear our prayers and receive our repentance for our sins, bring an end to this new infectious disease, just as You averted the punishment of Your people in the past time. You Who are the Physician of our souls and bodies, grant restored health to those who have been seized by this illness raising them from their bed of suffering so that they may glorify You, O Merciful Saviour, and preserve in health those who have not been infected. By Your grace, O Lord, bless, strengthen, and preserve, all those who out of love and sacrifice care for the sick, either in their homes or in the hospitals. Deliver people in this city, in our country, and around the world from all illnesses and suffering, and teach us to value life and health as gifts from You. Give us Your peace, O God, and fill our hearts with unflinching faith in Your protection, hope in Your help, and love for You and our neighbor. For it is Yours to be merciful and to save us, O our God, and to You we ascribe glory: to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, now and ever and unto the ages of ages. Amen.
