Presiding Bishop calls for prayer for President and First Lady

October 2, 2020

Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Michael Curry has issued the following statement:

During this time of the COVID-19 pandemic I continue to pray for all affected by this virus in any way.

At this particular moment I ask that all Episcopalians also pray for the President and First Lady, and all in the White House or Government who have been infected by this virus.

 

O God of heavenly powers, by the might of your command you drive away from our bodies all sickness and all infirmity: Be present in your goodness with your children, the President and First Lady, and all in the White House or Government who have been infected by this virus, that their weakness may be banished and their strength restored; and that, their health being renewed, they may bless your holy Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
