PRAYER FOR OUR TIME: 2020
God our Father, we ask your protection
against the Coronavirus that has
claimed lives and affected many.
We pray for your grace for the people
tasked with studying the nature of this virus and
of stemming the tide of its transmission.
Guide the hands and minds of the medical experts
to minister to the sick with competence and compassion, and
guide government and private agencies to find
a cure and solution to this epidemic.
We pray for those afflicted.
May they be restored to health soon.
Grant us the grace to work for the good of all
and to help those in need.
I ask for your special providence and
protection for our country, my family and my friends.
Please send your Holy Spirit to protect us from this virus.
And may Mary, our Blessed Mother,
place over us her mantel of protection.
Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ,
who lives and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God forever and ever.
