Jesus the Breath of Life, our Hope: a nurse’s prayer during coronavirus

As all humankind shelters from the breath of the dragon of coronavirus,
Nurses are called to care for the victims deprived of life-giving air.
Their patient’s breath infected, contaminating our space.
May God assist us to expand the lungs with the oxygen of life.

Protective gear and gown is a shield of body but not the soul.
Fuel our Spirit with Jesus’ goodness, our source of healing.
May this layer of protection never be a separation of compassion.
With so many sick, help us to give quality when unable to give time.

Breathe in us, Jesus, your essence of life to all.
