Two prayers, one traditional and one contemporary that can help us address the current Covid-19 crisis.


Collect for the Second Sunday of Lent, Book of Common Prayer

Almighty God,

who seest that we have no power of ourselves to help ourselves:

keep us both outwardly in our bodies, and inwardly in our souls;

that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body,

and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul;

through Jesus Christ our Lord,
