Prayer for the Afflicted in Pandemic

For the Afflicted
In Time of Pandemic

Let us pray for all those who suffer
the consequences of the current pandemic,
that God the Father may grant health to the sick,
strength to those who care for them,
comfort to families and salvation
to all the victims who have died.

Almighty ever-living God,
only support of our human weakness,
look with compassion upon
the sorrowful condition of your children,
who suffer because of this pandemic;
relieve the pain of the sick,
give strength to those who care for them,
welcome into your peace those who have died,
throughout this time of tribulation,
grant that we may all find comfort
in your merciful love.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
