Prayer in Time of Pestilence

O God,
you do not desire the death of sinners,
but you want them to turn to you and live.
Look with pity on the weakness of our mortal nature.
Deliver us from this pestilence.
Do not treat us as our sins deserve,
but look on us in mercy
and return your blessings to us;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
