Dear God, we pray for a swift end to this corona virus pandemic that afflicts the world. That You Father would heal the sick, strengthen those who care for them and help us all to persevere in faith. Almighty and merciful God, source of all life, health and healing. Please look with compassion upon our world brought low by disease. Protect us in the midst of these grave challenges that afflict us, and in Your Fatherly providence grant recovery to the stricken, strength to those who care for them, and success to those working to eradicate this scourge. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
