Corona Virus Prayer Library

This page contains Corona Virus prayers and intercessions for personal or group use, special prayers for use when it isn’t possible to meet in church, and a simple form of prayer for the morning and evening, which can be downloaded, printed, and shared with those remaining at home or who are unable to access the Internet. The majority of the prayers are taken from the Church of England Prayers for use during the corona virus outbreak.

These resources are offered to help those who are struggling to find words at this difficult and stressful time, and to enable Christians to worship in solidarity with one another even when it is not possible to gather in a church building.

Prayer for the world

God of love and hope,
you made the world and care for all creation,
but the world feels strange right now.
The news is full of stories about Coronavirus.
Some people are worried that they might get ill.
Others are anxious for their family and friends.
Be with them and help them to find peace.
We pray for the doctors and nurses and scientists,
and all who are working to discover the right
medicines to help those who are ill.
Thank you that even in these anxious times,
you are with us.
Help us to put our trust in you and keep us safe.

Amen.

Prayer for those who are ill

Merciful God,
we entrust to your tender care
those who are ill or in pain,
knowing that whenever danger threatens
your everlasting arms
are there to hold them safe.
Comfort and heal them,
and restore them to health and strength;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

Prayer for when a friend is ill

Dear God, (name of friend) is ill.
They are not allowed to go to school
or come over to play.
I’m sad because I miss them.
They must be feeling miserable and lonely as well.
Please be close to them.
Please be with the people
who are looking after them.
Please help them to get better
and to know that you love them.

Amen.

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.

Prayer of Protection

O God, the protector of all who trust in you,
without whom nothing is strong, nothing is holy:
increase and multiply upon us your mercy;
that with you as our ruler and guide,
we may so pass through things temporal
that we lose not our hold on things eternal;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Prayer remembering God is with us

Lord God, you are always with me.
You are with me in the day and in the night.
You are with me when I’m happy
and when I’m sad.
You are with me when I’m healthy
and when I am ill.
You are with me when I am peaceful
and when I am worried.
Today I am feeling (name how you are feeling)
because (reasons you are feeling this way).
Help me to remember that you love me
and are with me in everything today.

Amen.

Prayer to give yourself to God

I am giving you worship with all my life,
I am giving you obedience with all my power,
I am giving you praise with all my strength,
I am giving you honour with all my speech.
I am giving you love with all my heart,
I am giving you affection with all my sense,
I am giving you my being with all my mind,
I am giving you my soul,
O most high and holy God.
Praise to the Father,
Praise to the Son,
Praise to the Spirit,
The Three in One.

St Benedict's prayer

O gracious and holy Father,
give us wisdom to perceive you,
diligence to seek you,
patience to wait for you,
eyes to behold you,
a heart to meditate upon you,
and a life to proclaim you,
through the power of the spirit
of Jesus Christ our Lord.

The Jesus Prayer

Lord Jesus Christ,
Son of the living God,
have mercy on me, a sinner.
