Invisible, indivisible, making miserable
All classes and masses.
Unseen, unclean, mean; Covid 19.
Flexed, perplexed, vexed.
Relieved--- perceived--- achieved
The end of this undesirous virus.
Prayer for Healing
Oh God please consider the plight of this world’s population. We are the subjects of your divine creation.
Relieve us of our fears and help us to walk in truth and in your favor.
Equip us with knowledge to care for each other and to care for the earth.
Remove from us selfishness, unkindness, and greed.
Inscribe upon our memory that you are Lord and that you provide our daily need.
Give us the minds to share knowledge, resources, and great ideas.
Grant that our religious leaders be filled with wisdom to guide your flock in these times when the physical church is being tested.
Help us to know that you are God inside and outside of bricks and mortar. Through your love we can be connected from our homes, cyberspace, or wherever we may be.
Guide leaders of nations, states, and cities to be justly responsible to citizens and to distribute the resources of the earth in an equitable manner. Give them wisdom as they make crucial life and death decisions.
Bless educators, students, and parents in the communication of knowledge in their absence from the physical classroom. Inspire the new curriculum with information that will be useful in problem solving and caring for people of the earth.
Undergird physicians, nurses, and all health professionals with stamina as they perform their duties. Enable them to find the equipment and medical supplies that are needed. May your healing power circulate around sick beds in hospitals, care facilities, and homes.
Powerful God, let the visitation of your good spirit be in the scientific laboratories as a cure for this devastating disease is sought. Guide the eyes and hands of scientists as they explore the phenomena of the matter that you created.
Bless artists, musicians, writers and communicators in presenting truth to the world in creative ways. Provide more means for their gifts to inspire humanity.
Bless all laborers in the field of service: technicians, office workers, police officers, firemen, truck drivers, factory workers, bus drivers, store clerks, delivery drivers, sanitation workers, and personnel in all professions. Protect them as they perform their daily duties. Bless all who have been temporarily displaced from work in finding sustenance and new opportunities.
Thank you creator for all of your blessings. Help us to be patient as our planet is being cleansed and rearranged. We claim victory over disease and celebrate the coming of a new era.
