As well as all of the great issues surrounding us all due to the Covid 19 Crisis also pray more locally for those around us in our communities – our neighbours, those with whom we share our lives and on whose we work we depend.  Perhaps we might focus on an intent a day in addition to all our private and corporate national concerns:


Almighty God hear the prayers of your people for those with whom we share our lives and on whose work we depend.  Be with those who mourn, the lonely, anxious or distressed and grant your grace and strength to all whose work is essential or places them at risk.  This we ask through Christ our Lord. Amen.

A prayer for all those affected by Coronavirus

Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy.
Sustain and support the anxious,
be with those who care for the sick,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may find comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
