Prayer during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic

Prayer

Loving and healing God, at this time of fear and uncertainty we turn to you in prayer. We trust in your care and protection.

We ask for your love to support and strengthened us.

Fill us with compassion to look after others, young and old.

Bring healing to those who are sick with this new illness and watch over their families.

Give courage and strength of mind and body to our doctors, nurses, healthcare workers and all those in the medical profession working to overcome this virus. We place them in your care. Keep them safe from harm. Bless them now and in the days ahead.

Give guidance to our leaders and those in governance to make the right decisions for the wellbeing of all people.

We ask this through Christ, Our Lord.

Amen.

St Patrick, pray for us.

May all the saints of God, pray for us.

Amen.

Prayer for Strength and Guidance

Lord,

I reach out to you for your guidance.

Please show me which way to turn.

Calm my anxious thoughts.

Strengthen me as I falter and feel weary.

May I feel strength rising up within my heart.

I trust that you are with me, no matter where I go,

Or what I decide to do.

You journey with me always.

Amen.

Prayer for Healing

Heart of Compassion,

Source of Life…

Grant to the frail in body

the assurance of your strength; to all who are ill this day, a healing balm.

To those who wrestle with despair, grant peace.

May those with failing minds be met with kindness.

May broken bodies gently mend, may the broken-hearted find your consolation.

May those caught in the throes of pain be soothed

and may all who dwell upon

the threshold of eternity

be lifted to the fullness of your light.

Amen.

Prayer of St. John Henry Newman

May He support us all the day long,

till the shades lengthen

and the evening comes,

and the busy world is hushed,

and the fever of life is over,

and our work is done.

Then in His mercy may

He give us a safe lodging,

and a holy rest and peace at the last.
