Covid 19 Prayer

O God,We gather together separated by life-saving distancing, but united more than ever in spirit;We know we are in a war against COVID – 19 together, and the more together we are, the better and stronger we will emerge:We know the challenges are enormous, yet so are the opportunities;That whether we are in isolation with loved ones, or alone, we will have abundance of time;We commit to using that time to the max, to help those in greater need in whatever way we can;We know we all have the opportunity, and time, to be life savers and life enhancers;We give thanks for those who are on the front line taking care of those who are not well;We give thanks for the researchers who are working at breakneck speed to find cure and vaccine;We give thanks for our leaders, federal, provincial and local, for their dedication to all of us;We give thanks for the providers of our daily needs who go to work in spite of the risk;We give thanks for those who have ramped up their ability to produce life-saving supplies.We pray for the well-being of all our life savers; For those who are not well, that they recover fully;For those enduring difficulty, that they may overcome their challenges.We pray that a cure and vaccine will soon be available,And that we all – family, friends, all Canadians, the entire world may be healed in body and spirit.We ask you, O God, to bless our leaders, our front line care givers, our life savers and life enhancers.We ask you, O God, to bless Canada, to bless the world, to bless everyone.Amen.
(from Rabbi Dr. Reuven P. Bulka and Ottawa Archbishop Terrence Prendergast)
