Creator God of the universe, source of hope and wholeness, have mercy on the people of India as they combat the pandemic. We pray for a swift end to this catastrophic situation and for courage for those on the front lines. We pray for healing for all who are suffering and for their families and friends in distress. We remember those who have died and those who mourn. May the Spirit bring peace and comfort in the midst of grief, fear and despair.
We pray for wisdom for all governing authorities, especially for President Ram Nath Kovind, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his government and all in positions of political and social leadership. And we pray that we, of the nations of world, will respond with compassion and help for our brothers and sisters in need. We offer these fervent prayers in the name of Jesus, our Risen Lord. Amen.
