Prayers for the current crisis
In the light of the coronavirus pandemic-
On all who tend the sick, counsel the distressed,
Sit with the dying, or develop medical research
We ask your blessing.
And for those who administer the agencies of health and welfare,
We ask your guidance in all that they do, that
Human worth may be valued and human need fully resourced.
We give thanks for all that is being done at this crucial time, especially the new hope given us in the development of a number of vaccines which we pray will finally be successful in combatting the pandemic. Amen
We pray for our Nation
For all finding isolation so difficult, whether living alone or with family at the beginning of this 3rd round of lockdown. We give thanks for all those who are heeding Government warnings, however irksome, and pray that this will be the case throughout this next lockdown period.
We pray that we may all be ever mindful of the needs of others. We pray for those families struggling to feed their children, for the worry and anxiety that this must cause and for a more permanent solution to be found. We give thanks for all those volunteers who have stepped in to help.
We also pray for all decisions that are being made about the economy, for our children and young people at school and university and we pray for the students who are having such a very difficult time; for their studies and for their mental health. We pray especially for all those keyworkers in the NHS,in care homes, in education, in Social Services,the police and supermarket workers and any others known to us, whose own health is at risk as a result of the vital role they are playing in helping others to stay safe.
We pray for our Parish
We pray for our parish when now, once again, we have gone back to having our services online.We ask your blessing on us and the decisions that have been taken for the good of all. We give thanks for the great efforts that are being made to keep us safe and that our services may reach as wide a congregation as possible during this time. We also remember all the member Churches of the CTC as the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is observed this week.
Through Jesus Christ, Our Lord.
