A prayer for those who have died from the Coronavirus

Loving and merciful God, we pray for the souls of all who have died during the Coronavirus pandemic; for those of all ages, young and old, whose lives have been cut short; for those who through difficult circumstances died alone;  for those whose death was sudden and with no time to prepare for it.
Ever-present God, we hold up these precious lives to you, giving thanks for the love that has been given and received.
May they be granted peace, now and forever.
