Prayer for a time of National Disaster and Crisis
Eternal God, amid all the turmoil and changes of the world, your love is steadfast and your strength never fails. In this time of contagion with COVID-19, be to us a sure guardian and rock of defense. Guide the leaders of our nation with your wisdom, comfort the sick, and those in distress, grant protection to all caregivers and service providers, and grant us courage and hope to face the days ahead.
Where hearts are fearful and constricted, grant courage and hope. Where anxiety is infectious and widening, grant peace and reassurance. Where spirits are daunted and weakened, grant soaring wings and strengthened trust in your grace and mercy. All these things we ask in the same of Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.
