Collect for World AIDS Day

From the National Episcopal AIDS Coalition:

Loving God, You provide comfort and hope to those who suffer. Be present with all HIV
positive persons and their families in this and every land, that they may be
strengthened in their search for health, wholeness and abundant living, through Christ
our Companion. Amen.

  1. I hate to be cranky, but that collect seems kind of... sparse. I mean, it prays for good things, but it almost sounds like it's talking about a disease that's annoying, rather than one that kills people. I mean, I watched, at last count, 12 people die of AIDS here in NYC in the last year. And that number is only that low (although we should have the ability to make it much lower) because in the US people (theoretically) have access to HAART and sophisticated medical care. What about the millions who don't?
