Jesus, you traveled through towns and villages "curing every disease and illness." At your command, the sick were made well. Come to our aid now, in the midst of the global spread of the coronavirus, that we may experience your healing love.
Whether we are home or abroad, surrounded by many people suffering from this illness or only a Few, Jesus stay with us as we endure and mourn, persist and prepare. In place of our anxiety, give us your peace.
