Gracious God, we give you thanks for loving us. We know that you do not willingly afflict or grieve your children. Restore the health of those who are infected and suffer with the COVID-19 or other illnesses. Strengthen and bless them. May we support all who suffer with our prayers and loving kindness. Strengthen our faith as we await the healing of the nations from this disease. In the holy name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
