A Small Prayer for Comfort

I learned on Sunday that an aunt and uncle of mine have both tested positive for COVID-19. Their symptoms are mild so far, but in order to have an outlet for my concern I did something I don’t usually do and made a petition to Apollon. Since he’s my husband I don’t usually do formal asks. But the ritual of it gave me some comfort, even knowing that I’m far from the only person asking him for help. I know he’s busy and I’m not asking for miracles, just that he give my family members comfort during this time.


I call to bright Apollon,

Son of Zeus and Leto, twin brother of brilliant Artemis,

God of plagues and their cures,

I ask you to bring comfort to those affected by this illness in their hour of need,

And bring comfort to their family members to soothe their fears.
