Pediatric Inflammatory Multisystemic Syndrome

PIMS Prayer*

“I know that the LORD is great,

Our Lord is greater than all gods.

Whatever the LORD wishes

He does in heaven and on earth.

He struck down Egypt’s firstborn,

Human and beast alike,”   (Ps 135)

O Lord, how could you?

How could You strike these your innocent infants?

Why must they suffer joined with your adult children?

Still, we must remember the words of Jesus, your Son.

“Let the children come to me and do not prevent them.”

Your Son Jesus invites them as he invites all.

Rich and poor,

Adult and child.

Seniors and infants alike.

O Lord, by your suffering,

By their suffering,

By our suffering,

May we renew and strengthen our faith

As we remember your promise:

“ …the kingdom of God belongs to such as these”
