All-powerful Father,   

We turn to You for protection, comfort and guidance as the Coronavirus crisis spreads around the world. During this frightening time, wrap us all in your loving embrace and keep us safe; comfort those who have already lost loved ones to the deadly Covid-19 virus. Guide us to make the right decisions, day by day, to keep ourselves, our families and our communities healthy and secure. Protect the devoted healthcare workers who put their own lives on the line to care for the sick. Oh loving God, take away our fear, infuse us with strength and remind us that even in our isolation, You walk beside us always. We ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
