As the saying goes, “things are getting real.” Her Majesty’s schedule is being rearranged in a manner suitable to precautions regarding the global coronavirus pandemic. Praying for the preservation in good health of Her Majesty, Prince Philip, and the rest of the Royal Family, as well as all the people of Britain and the United Kingdom. Indeed, all the people of the world!

A Prayer “In the time of any common Plague or Sickness,” from The Book of Common Prayer 1662:

O ALMIGHTY God, who in thy wrath did send a plague upon thine own people in the wilderness, for their obstinate rebellion against Moses and Aaron; and also, in the time of king David, didst slay with the plague of Pestilence threescore and ten thousand, and yet remembering thy mercy didst save the rest; Have pity upon us miserable sinners, who now are visited with great sickness and mortality; that like as thou didst then accept of an atonement, and didst command the destroying Angel to cease from punishing, so it may now please thee to withdraw from us this plague and grievous sickness; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
