SDG 3: Good health and well-being


Good Holy Spirit, breath of life in our body, We pray for all those who live with pain, And fight against the forces of death. Teach us to share hope, comfort and medical care. We thank you for everything that strengthens life and health. We commit everything and everyone, into your hands, Lord. Amen.
