In this time of hand-washing and social-distancing, we offer prayers for those who have been directly affected by the virus:

Source of healing,
Cast the light of health and well-being
On those who’ve been exposed to COVID-19,
Those who have contracted the disease,
And those — God forbid — who contract the disease in the future.
Bless them, protect them and bring them speedily to full recovery.
Bless all who are ill
With healing of body,
Healing of soul
And healing of spirit.

.ברוך אתה ה’, מקור חיים
Baruch atah Adonai, m’kor chayim.
Blessed are You Adonai, Source of life.

Mi Shebeirach

Mi Shebeirach avoteinu, M'kor hab'rachah l'imoteinu.
May the Source of Strength,
Who blessed the ones before us,
Help us find the courage, to make our lives a blessing,
And let us say - Amen.

Mi Shebeirach imoteinu, M'kor hab'rachah la'avoteinu.
Bless those in need of healing, with r'fuah sh'leima.
The renewal of body, the renewal of spirit.
And let us say - Amen.
