The Archdiocese of Manila posted the prayer on its Facebook page Friday, July 30.

The prayer reads:

“Dear God, our loving Father,

We ask You extend Your hand over us to protect us especially from harm, from the threat that is brought about by COVID-19 especially by this new Delta variant.

We ask You also to continually guide and enlightened those who take care of our health, the government, our doctors, our nurses, those that are working especially in the hospitals and all the frontliners so that they may continue their work in order to safeguard the health of the community.

This we ask of You through Christ our Lord. Amen.”

The archdiocese said the prayer was taken from the interview of Radio Veritas with the cardinal.

The Department of Health (DOH) on Friday reported 8,562 new cases of COVID-19 in the country.
