A Prayer in the Time of Plague
by Rabbi Martin S. Cohen
Avinu Malkeinu, Dear God in Heaven, protect our families, our friends, and our neighbours
as we negotiate these troubled seas in which we find ourselves afloat.
Ever mindful of the fact that we are all Your creatures, we turn to You for guidance and for strength as
we pray that the public officials charged with bringing us through this crisis be granted wisdom,
intelligence, and insight born of compassion and charity.
And we pray too that the physicians, nurses, and hospital employees who are on the front lines
be spared all distress and disease as they care for the stricken, for the elderly, and for the infirm.
Most of all, we pray that You look with kindness and generosity on us all, and particularly on those
already infected for whose recovery we this day ardently pray, as is written in Your holy Torah, “For I,
the Almighty, am the source of Your healing.” Amen, may such be Your will!
Coronavirus: A Prayer of Hope During this Pandemic
by Rabbi Naomi Levy
We are frightened, God,
Worried for our loved ones,
Worried for our world.
Helpless and confused,
We turn to You
Seeking comfort, faith and hope.
Teach us God, to turn our panic into patience,
And our fear into acts of kindness and support.
Our strong must watch out for our weak,
Our young must take care of our old.
Help each one of us to do our part to halt the spread of this virus
Send strength and courage to the doctors and nurses
In the frontlines of this battle,
Fortify them with the full force of their healing powers.
Send wisdom and insight to the scientists
Working day and night across the world to discover healing treatments.
Bless their efforts, God.
Fill our leaders with the wisdom and the courage
To choose wisely and act quickly.
Help us, God, to see that we are one world,
Who will rise above this pandemic together.
Send us health God,
Watch over us,
Grace us with Your love,
Bless us with Your healing light.
Hear us God,
Heal us God,
