Parish prayer

For the Coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak

God of compassion, we offer up in prayer all who are affected by this outbreak. We pray for all healthcare workers and researchers, as well as all who are ill and the family members and friends who care for them. We pray for those whose livelihoods and income are threatened by the outbreak and for all living in uncertainty. We pray for wise decisions, increased compassion, and the recognition that all who are affected share a common humanity as children of the one God. We offer our prayers in the confidence that your perfect love casts out fear, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
