A prayer about the coronavirus outbreak

God of compassion,
be close to those who are ill, afraid or in isolation.
In their loneliness, be their consolation;
in their anxiety, be their hope;
in their darkness, be their light;
through Him who suffered alone on the cross,
but reigns with You in glory,
Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.

A prayer from one who is ill or isolated

O God, help me to trust You,
help me to know that You are with me,
help me to believe
that nothing can separate me
from Your love
revealed in Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.
