Prayers for Coronavirus Outbreak

Keep us, good Lord,

under the shadow of your mercy,

in this time of uncertainty and distress.

Sustain and support the anxious and fearful

and lift up all who are brought low;

that we may rejoice in your comfort

knowing that nothing can separate us

from your love in Christ Jesus our Lord.


3 O’clock Divine Mercy Prayer

You expired, O Jesus,

but the source of life flowed out for souls

and an ocean of mercy

opened up for the whole world.

O Fountain of Life,

unfathomable Divine Mercy,

envelop the whole world,

and empty Yourself out upon us.

O Blood and Water,

which gushed forth

from the Heart of Jesus

as a Fount of Mercy for us,

I trust in You.


Holy God,

Holy Mighty One,

Holy Immortal One,

Have mercy on us

and on the hole world. (3X)


Jesus, King of Mercy, I trust in You.



Prayers for those in isolation

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.




Prayers for Medical Staff & Researchers

Gracious God,

give skill, sympathy and resilience

to all who are caring for the sick,

and your wisdom to those researching for a cure.

Strengthen them with your Spirit,

that through their work

many will be restored to health;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.


Prayers for those who mourn during this time of the Coronavirus COVID-19

Lord of all gentleness.

You are close to the broken-hearted.

We entrust into your care

those who mourn the loss

of a loved one this day.

Surround them with our love

and comfort them in their sorrow.

Grant that they may not be overwhelmed

by their loss.

May they know the consolation and support

of the Christian community

Give them confidence in your goodness

and strength to meet the days ahead.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.


Prayers for Health Care Workers

God of everlasting goodness,

you sent your Son among us

to bring healing, peace, and reconciliation

to our weary world.

Be with all health care workers and their assistants

in this time of the Coronavirus pandemic.

As they continue Jesus’ ministry of care,

renew them in mind, body, and spirit.

Keep them safe from infection and illness,

and may Christ’s healing presence

flow through them

as they serve those entrusted to their care.

We ask this in his name,

Christ the healer,

who is Lord forever and ever.

Marian Prayer for Our Time

O Mary, Health of the Sick,

you always shine on our path

as a sign of salvation and of hope.

We entrust ourselves to you.

You know what we need,

and we are sure you will provide

so that, as in Cana of Galilee,

we may return to joy and to feasting

after this time of trial.

Help us, Mother of Divine Love,

to do as we are told by Jesus,

who has taken upon Himself our sufferings

and carried our sorrows,

leading us through the cross

to the joy of the Resurrection.
