A prayer for restoration and rebirth: A response to the coronavirus

Provident God,

You are a God of restoration and rebirth and we are a people in need.

During this time of uncertainty, we ask that you keep us free from fear and isolation.

Help us to live responsibly so that we may reduce the possibility of getting and spreading disease.

Protect us from plummeting into the social darkness of racism, poverty and despair that a pandemic can cause.

Aid our global community as it seeks to share resources, human skills and the knowledge needed to eradicate the virus.

Heal those who are ill and return them to their “normal” lives.

Be a source of strength and calm for those whose loved ones have been taken from them.

Grant that hope be reborn in people of all races, creeds and cultures.

God of restoration and rebirth, restore our lives so that we may be your love, mercy and justice in this world.

And may all who have succumbed to the virus know eternal peace.
