God of every country,
we pray for India and its peoples.
Comfort bereaved families.
Work quick recoveries
foe those who battle COVID.
May those who have managed to stay out of harm’s way
continue to stay safe.
Grant the country’s leadership the wisdom
to focus its energies on fighting the virus
rather than on controlling the narrative
about its handling of the crisis.
Lord, in your mercy! Amen.
