God of Love,
Wholeness and health are what you want for humankind;
We pray for those who are suffering disease and anxiety as a result of the epidemic in China,
For those who are fearful for their health, their families or their livelihood.
Give energy to those who care tirelessly for the sick,
Give insight to those who are investigating causes and solutions.
God of Community,
Kindness and forbearance are your wish for our lives;
We pray for those who are unnerved and impatient,
For those whose worry leads them to resentment.
Give us all the desire for greater care in the whole of our environment,
Give us, above all else, your love.
We ask these things in the Name of the holy community, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
