Here is a prayer we can all use during this Coronavirus pandemic
Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy
in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may rejoice in your comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen
We are each being asked to stop at 11am each day to say Psalm 23 and recite the Lord’s Prayer (download the text). Why not join us in prayer as we seek to pray for our world at this time?
Here are some resources to help us pray:
- The Church of England has put together lots of prayer resources
- The Church of England have crafted two simple acts of worship, particularly geared to those who are isolated or housebound, or who are unable to attend church.
- Scripture Union have produced Word Live as a daily bible reading and prayer resource.
- This simple form of daily prayer is adapted from material by St Peters Earley.
- These intercessions for use in personal prayer may help you structure your prayer.
