God our Father, we come to you in our need
To ask your protection against the COVID-19
That has claimed lives and affected many.
We pray for your grace
For the people tasked with studying the nature and cause of this virus and its disease
And of stemming the tide of its transmission.
Guide the hands and minds of medical experts that they may minister to the sick
With competence and compassion,
And of those governments and private agencies
That must find cure and solution to this pandemic.
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.
Grant this through our Lord, Jesus Christ, your Son,
Who lives and reigns with You, in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
One God, forever and ever. Amen.
Mother Mary, Help of all Christians, pray for us.
St. Raphael the Archangel, pray for us.
St. Roch, pray for us.
