The Coronavirus pandemic is affecting probably every country in the world (and if not all, then most). We are conscious of the pressures on our health service, but in many Developing countries they have a much less comprehensive healthcare system: fewer staff, fewer facilities, less equipment, people unable to pay for healthcare, and in some cases suspicion of ‘Western’ medicine.
Lord, we pray for those who work in healthcare in countries where the system could well be overwhelmed by the Coronavirus pandemic. Keep them safe, keep them strong, provide them with what they need. We pray too for those with the illness, and their families. Amen
