A Prayer in the time of common Plague or Sickness  

                         

O Almighty God, who in thy wrath didst 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 sickensss and mortality; that like as thou didst then accept of an atonement, and didst

command thy 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.

(from the Book of Common Prayer)
