Our Father in heaven,
We thank you for the government officials, scientists, and health care workers who are working to eradicate this epidemic. Yet we know that theirs are arms of flesh.
We call on You, O Lord our God, to fight this battle. Did not Your Son Jesus say, I am the life? O Father, You are the Origin and Source of Life, the Sustainer of Life, and the Wellspring of Life. Help us to fight this battle. In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.
