Prayer against Coronavirus 

Almighty and merciful Father, 

We thank you for the life that is your gift, 

For the providence, that sustains us, 

And for your wisdom that directs the course of our days. 

Forgive our sins against your love, 

Against each other and against your creation. 

The threat of an infection of coronavirus is upon us today. 

This disease causes fear among us and has claimed some lives. 

We humbly beg you, loving Father 

To deliver us from this and other diseases. 

Heal those who are afflicted and stop the spread of the virus. 

Strengthen us in charity to care for each other. 

We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, 

Who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit 

One God for ever and ever. Amen 

Deacon Raymond Chan’s Sunday Homily
