Prayers for the COVID-19 Pandemic

These prayers are being said at every service and we invite you to make them part of your prayers at home as well.

For Hospitals and Health Care Workers

Most merciful Father, who hast taught us to love thee with all our strength and to glorify thee in our bodies: We commend to thee for thy continual blessing the hospitals of our land and those who serve in them. Prosper all that is being done for the healing of the sick and the conquest of this disease; that thy will may be done in the relief of suffering and the making of lives whole; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

For the Unemployed

O Lord, our Heavenly Father, we commend to thy care and compassion the men and women of our land now suffering distress through lack of work; support and strengthen them, we beseech thee; and so prosper the counsels of those who are engaged in the ordering of our common life, that thy people may be set free from want and fear, and find the relief of their necessities; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

For the Sick

O God, whose compassions fail not, whose faithfulness is new every morning: Draw near, we pray thee, to those who are stricken with sickness and pain. Ease their discomfort, allay their fears, strengthen their faith, and be thou their salvation and their peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
