Prayers to God for help, comfort and salvation
God our Father, Creator of the world, almighty and merciful,
out of love for us You sent your Son into the world
as the doctor of our souls and our bodies,
look upon your children who,
in this difficult time of confusion and dismay
in many regions of Europe and the world,
turn to you seeking strength, salvation and relief,
deliver us from illness and fear, heal our sick,
comfort their families, give wisdom to our rulers,
Energy and reward to our doctors,
nurses and volunteers, eternal life to the dead.
Do not abandon us in the moment of trail but deliver us from all evil.
We ask this of you, who with the Son and the Holy Spirit,
live and reign forever and ever.
