God of wisdom,
bless medical scientists and researchers around the world
with insight and skill, dedication and fortitude
as they combat coronavirus,
so that their work yields knowledge and understanding,
speedily finding a vaccine, treatments and deterrents to its spread.
Source of life,
grant public health and government officials
the strength to act swiftly and decisively
with compassion and understanding
in service to humankind,
fighting this outbreak
and the other diseases that still plague the planet,
diseases threatening the lives of our brothers and sisters,
nations and communities,
young and old.
Rock of Ages,
bring an end to disease and suffering
so that all may know
your compassion and your grace.
Praised are You, Adonai, healer of flesh, maker of wonders. Amen.
