A Prayer for the Fearful

Added about 3 months ago by Graham Turner

A prayer by Graham Turner for us all as we struggle to deal with the global COVID-19 pandemic.

Lord of Life,
   today we are a fearful and anxious people.

As the viral illness intrudes deeper into our lives
   we feel its threat and the menace of its violence.

We are prone to panic, causing us to think the worst
   and hoard resources that we do not need,
   thus depriving others of vital supplies.

The daily breaking news makes us feel naked
   in the face of this unstoppable sickness
   that migrates across the globe.

In these difficult days, give us a viral love
   that will infuse into others’ lives.

Heal the sick and use us as agents of hope.
Protect the vulnerable and strengthen us to take care of others.
Pour your abundant wisdom into our leaders and give us concern for their well-being.

For the sake of all humanity we pray,
Amen.
