The entire globe? A virus – unseen. Has God been seen? We will wax definitely ‘unreligious’ for a minute…
What Created Earth?
We could waste time on the proposed science of it all. Rather, we can study history. Is that history or God’s-Story?
And now we can look at the present from this perspective:
So, what do we as Christians believe? What is faith and/or hope? Hope is thay Science will come out with a vaccine. Until then? Maintain social distancing/wear masks, don gloves?
All understood. Where did we all come from?
Or should I ask “Where and how did covid originate?” https://www.livescience.com/how-covid-19-spreads-transmission-routes.html
Does it really matter?
Do we turn to our Source for The answer? Believe what you will. Science, art, religion and realize while you do so that we are all one!
And we pray:
Jesus Christ, you traveled through towns and villages “curing every disease and illness.” At your command, the sick were made well. Come to our aid now, in the midst of the global spread of the coronavirus, that we may experience your healing love.
Heal those who are sick with the virus. May they regain their strength and health through quality medical care.
Heal us from our fear, which prevents nations from working together and neighbors from helping one another.
Heal us from our pride, which can make us claim invulnerability to a disease that knows no borders.

Jesus Christ, healer of all, stay by our side in this time of uncertainty and sorrow.
Be with those who have died from the virus. May they be at rest with you in your eternal peace.
Be with the families of those who are sick or have died. As they worry and grieve, defend them from illness and despair. May they know your peace.
Be with the doctors, nurses, researchers and all medical professionals who seek to heal and help those affected and who put themselves at risk in the process. May they know your protection and peace.
Be with the leaders of all nations. Give them the foresight to act with charity and true concern for the well-being of the people they are meant to serve. Give them the wisdom to invest in long-term solutions that will help prepare for or prevent future outbreaks. May they know your peace, as they work together to achieve it on earth.
Whether we are home or abroad, surrounded by many people suffering from this illness or only a few, Jesus Christ, stay with us as we endure and mourn, persist and prepare. In place of our anxiety, give us your peace.
Jesus Christ, heal us, Amen.
