Daily opening prayer
(adapted from African Catholic Bishops)
Almighty and merciful Father, who shows your love to all creation, we come before you asking for a quick control of the Coronavirus currently ravaging our world. Hear graciously the prayers we make for those affected by the virus in various parts of the world. Grant healing to the sick, eternal life to the dead and consolation to bereaved families. Look upon us in your mercy and forgive us our fallings. Amen.
