Let us pray:
God of healing and mercy,
we come before you with our hearts filled with grief
as we see the devastation of the Covid 19 virus.
We pray that your presence would be felt by those who are grieving,
who are infected, who have lost their jobs and livelihoods.
We pray for wisdom and safety for those who are responding to the people in need
the first responders, the nurses and doctors and our president and his advisors.
Help them as they face down the many challenges left in the wake of this event.
We pray for our church, that it may be a witness to your compassion and care
for all who suffer.
Lord we ask you to enlighten the researchers and laboratory workers seeking a cure.
Please let them be successful in finding a medicine quickly.
God, you are our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in times of trouble.
Lord we are desperate.
Please answer our prayers quickly.
