Healing Prayer for a Time of Pandemic

May the One who blesses all life bless those who are ill with a refuah sheleimahcomplete healing of body and spirit. May they find the strength to move safely through this time of fear and pain, dis-ease and uncertainty. May their loved ones find comfort through the love of their families, friends and communities.

Let us faithfully support our health professionals who put their own lives at risk to treat their patients. May we do what we must to ensure that scientists and researchers have the resources they need to diagnose illness and prevent its spread.

Let us demand that our leaders and officials honor the public trust we’ve entrusted to them by prioritizing the health of our communities. May we forever fight for the wellbeing of those who are the most vulnerable in our midst: the poor, the homeless, the disabled, the uninsured.

And when this pandemic is over—may it happen bimheirah b’yameinu—soon in our day—let us commit to building at long last a society that takes responsibility for the health of all who dwell in our midst.

Ken yehi ratzeynu—may this be our will. And let us say,

Amen.
