Prayer for AIDS

Almighty and most gracious Father, healer of the sick and defender of the weak: look with your gracious favor upon all who suffer from AIDS and other HIV related diseases. Comfort them in their distress and their pain. Sustain and guide those who care for them. Sharpen the minds of those whose research will one day lead to a cure. Give to our nation and all the peoples on the earth, the wisdom, diligence, and dedication to conquer this scourge, which continues to lay waste your creation. Turn our eyes and our hearts to the poorest on this earth who suffer most from the terror of this dread disease. Receive into the arms of your mercy all who have died and grant that in the last day we may join the saints and angels around your throne in heavn, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
