This short documentary tells a story in first person, of where I am faced with a new reality due to the coronavirus pandemic. The film, A Prayer for Protection, is a personal response to the first few weeks of the coronavirus outbreak in Massachusetts. It is my response to coping with the anxiety and fear around me through the use of prayer. I put to music a protection prayer taken from Prayers and Meditations, section 19, by Baha’u’llah, to narrate the story. While the protection prayer is the antidote to coping with the stresses of the coronavirus, the photographs and clips used to illustrate the anxiety of living through the coronavirus within my own experience but also from the news. During these unprecedented times and feelings of fear and loneliness a protection prayer provides a blanket of security for our souls. I hope this story uplifts our souls in times of suffering and reminds us that we are not alone in these trials.
