Prayer When a Loved One is Diagnosed with COVID-19

Eloha kol haBriyot/God, Creator of all Living Beings:
The family of humankind is facing a devastating pandemic,
Spread across the earth and causing incalculable suffering and death.
Our loved one, ______________________________ ,
has been diagnosed with this perilous virus,
plunging us into further uncertainty, distress, and terror.
We turn to You for special support and strength
in this time of great vulnerability and despair.
Bring ____________ a r’fuah shleimah u-m’heirah,
a speedy, sturdy healing in all dimensions possible.
Strengthen and guide those healthcare professionals who are laboring to restore health,
as well as all the “ordinary people” who make day-to-day life possible;
Enable communities and society to care for those who are ill
as well as for those who love them,
who cannot be physically in touch with their close ones.
As we pray for our dear ____________________,
So we pray for all those experiencing sudden and severe illness.
May we soon see a world vaccinated and restored to life,
returning to a sense of normalcy and appropriate routine,
while actively committing to undo the extreme inequities
that this pandemic made plain for all to see.
Ki Ata Rofeh hol basar u-mafli la’asot
For You, Compassionate One, are the Healer of All, Doing Wondrous Things.
