Petitionary Prayers on Shabbat
Normally, we avoid petitionary prayers on Shabbat and Yom Tov. But how about if an individual or group of people are facing a crisis? Are petitionary prayers allowed on Shabbat or Yom Tov then?
What I’m thinking of a lot is the coronavirus. So many people I know personally have it and their lives are on the line. And besides, everyone in the world is in danger. Is it permitted on Shabbat to pray to G-d for their recovery and a speedy end to this crisis, given that human lives are in danger?
