O God, Author of Peace, in Your fatherly care, reach out to our brother in Christ and defend him from this dread disease that has come upon him. We humbly plead with You to look upon him and bless him. May he be embraced in the communion of Your Holy Spirit. May he lie down and sleep in peace, knowing that You alone, O Lord, make him dwell in safety. In the Name of Jesus Christ, we pray, Amen.
