at this time of crisis across the world
we seek your blessing on all people.
Comfort and strengthen all who have contracted the Coronavirus
and their family and friends who love and care for them.
Bless all who mourn the death of loved ones in every part of the world,
and encourage all who are working to combat the virus and bring it under control.
May this crisis, that reminds us so much of our human frailty,
draw the human family together with a common purpose and compassion,
and may your healing Spirit flood the earth
to sustain us through and beyond these current times;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
