Prayer against covid 19
Before so much agony, my heart moans,
this coronavirus is reaping creatures,
as in a wheat field ready for harvest.
I woke up from the delusion of omnipotence
the night had darkened my mind.
Now I don’t know what to hold on to anymore,
while my closest friends
they disappear amidst unheard of sufferings.
Oh Almighty Father accept my plea,
do not look at betrayals,
insults and sins of all kinds
Welcome me as the prodigal son.
I want to repeat his words:
Father, I have sinned against Heaven and against you;
I am no longer worthy to be called your son.
Now in this anguish, tribulations and fears
my cry reaches you like that of the apostles on the boat
at the mercy of the storm: “Master, we are lost!”.
Then you threatened the wind and the sea,
the wind stopped and there was great calm.
Calm the storms of my soul and drive away my anxieties.
Free me from the fears that don’t give me peace.
Come Jesus because I know where you are
there can be no evil and fear.
Wherever you have helped every disease,
you answered every cry, you were moved by every misery.
The blind has regained their sight,
the deaf the hearing, the dumb the word,
the paralyzed the health, the dead the life.
Now listen to my unceasing cry: come Jesus, heal me!
I am here before you, Lord Jesus.
Even if I am a sinner, I rely on you.
Don’t look at my sins and forgive me,
wash me with your blood and I will be healed.
Hear the cry for help that I hear rising from the depths.
Enter my heart, save my soul,
heal me from this affliction and suffering.
Touch me and I will be healed.
