Merciful God, hear our prayer

On Sunday the Intercessions began with thoughts for those most affected by the Corona Virus. With kind permission we share these thoughtful words.
Merciful God, we pray for the many people who have contracted the Corona virus in the world. Bring comfort to those grieving the loss of loved ones, and peace to those worried, fearful and uncertain as the virus spreads. We also pray for governments and authorities who are developing strategies to contain and deal with the virus, and those working in the health and care services who may be risking their own lives to care for sick patients and those in need.  Amen.
