A Coronavirus Prayer

“Jesus Christ, you traveled through towns and villages ‘curing every disease and illness.’ At your command, the sick were made well. Come to our aid now, in the midst of the global spread of the coronavirus, that we may experience your healing love.”

These are the opening words from, “A Coronavirus Prayer,” created by Kerry Weber, an executive editor for America. Listen to and or read her prayer here.

One thought on “A Coronavirus Prayer

  1. My Coronavirus mediations and prayers have been focusing on how we can be “Christ for one another” at this time. My atheist friends – yes, I have some and believe that I have many opportunities for evangelizing during our conversations – say that why would God allow – fill in the blank – covid -19, wars, pain, suffering. I don’t believe that God allows any of these things. He created Heaven and Earth and all who dwell here. He loves us and created us in his image. Jesus was sent to us to show us caring, compassion, forgiveness, and through his death and resurrection we are promised eternal life. The world is suffering right now. God knows it and understands our pain because he saw the suffering of his own son. He doesn’t wish this for us: He is not punishing us. I believe that he is crying. I believe that he is experiencing Jesus’s suffering over and over again with what is happening on Earth. It is time for all to be Christ for one another. Peace be with you.
