Hear our Prayer

Avinu Malkeinu: You are the God of all compassion and comfort.

We thank you that you listen to our prayers.

We pray today for our world, our nation, our city and our community as this Coronavirus continues to spread. 

Please bring help to all our communities according to their needs.

Heal those afflicted and strengthen all who have the responsibility for care.

In your mercy, please provide a cure and give wisdom to those seeking to develop a vaccine for this condition.

We pray, too, for ourselves.

Enable us to walk in faith.

Help us to be careful and wise in taking whatever precautions are necessary to limit and contain the spread of this virus. 

Strengthen us to remain calm while vigilant; responsible citizens seeking the welfare of others above ourselves.

At times of uncertainty and anxiety, we humbly ask, Avinu Malkeinu – Hear our Prayer

-- Rabbi Gersh Lazarow, Temple Beth Israel, Melbourne
