Our family is taking time daily to pray about the current global health crisis. Our prayers will likely reference the Christian tradition, but we’ve written with an ecumenical and agnostic audience in mind.
If you’d like us to pray for you, let us know. If you’d like us to write a prayer for you or for a concern you have and share it here, just ask. You don’t have to share your name if you don’t want to, and we won’t share it or any other identifying details about you here or elsewhere.
Today we pray for people who are immunocompromised and those with underlying or pre-existing health conditions.
Today we pray for people with immunocompromised health and other health conditions that make them vulnerable to viruses or make recovery from illness more challenging. We pray for those who are ill and those who fear they will be ill, as well as all the people who care about them and for them, including physicians, nurses, home health aids, and friends and family.
We pray for those we don’t know and for those we do, including [names of people we care about who are ill or who have had illnesses that make them vulnerable to further sickness].
We pray for all those with AIDs, cancer, diabetes, and malnutrition, as well as other conditions that suppress their immune systems. We pray for those who use medications that make them vulnerable to other illnesses. And we pray for all those in nursing homes, hospitals, prisons, foster homes, ICE detention centers, and group homes who may be more vulnerable to the spread of disease because of where they live.
We pray for them health, safety, security, and access to medicine, good healthcare and sanitary conditions. We hope for them peace of heart and assurance. We pray that they are able to rest from any worries they might have.
We are thankful for every member of our community, for each unique contribution they make, the gifts they share, the ways they leave, and the models they provide.
