A Prayer in Time of Pestilence and Pandemics
Let us pray to the Lord. Lord have mercy.
Heavenly Lord and Creator of all things, have mercy on us your people, for we have strayed from the path which You have given us.
Forgive our many offenses and grant us your mercies.
We come to you today with tears of repentance and ask for your protection from the terrible disease that threatens us.
We have sinned, Oh Lord, and we have disobeyed your Commandments, but we beseech your mercy and compassion; have mercy on your servants, on the elderly and the children; have mercy on us all, and keep away from the terrible diseases and viruses which appeared in our days.
Send your holy angels, Oh Lord, to disperse every disease and calamity and keep us safe and healthy that we may worship and glorify your Most Holy Name of the Father and of the Son and the Holy Spirit, through the intercessions of the Holy Theotokos and of all your Saints.
