A Coronavirus Prayer

Loving and healing God,

We, the people of Kildare and Leighlin turn to you in prayer, confident that you are with us and with all people in every moment.

We stand before you as people of hope, trusting in your care and protection.

May your faithful love support us and soothe the anxiety of our hearts.

Generous God, fill us with compassion and concern for others, young and old, that we may look after one another in these

challenging days.

Bring healing to those who are sick with the virus  and be with their families.

Strengthen and protect all medical

professionals caring for the sick, and all who work in our medical facilities.

Give wisdom to leaders in healthcare and

governance that they may make the right decisions for the well-being of people.

We pray in gratitude for all those in our country

who will continue to work in the days ahead in so many fields of life for the sake of us all.

Bless them and keep them safe.
