Praying for Hope

A Prayer of Hope During this Pandemic

by Rabbi Naomi Levy

We are still worried, God,
Worried for our loved ones,
Worried for our world.
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.
Open the eyes of those who are ignoring warnings that can and will save lives.
Help each one of us to do our part to end 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 make sure our Covid vaccines are effective against all variants.
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,
One people,
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,
Amen.

I am a wife, mother, and author. I taught high school for 27 years and I was a hospital and hospice chaplain until my health required that I retire. I miss my hospital coworkers and cannot imagine how terrible this year and last year have been. I want to be there for them in at least this small way.
