Prayers for the Pandemic 

As a church we pray for our government leaders to make sensible and informed decisions, we pray for our NHS and key workers that they may do their best and stay safe themselves, we pray for those that have lost their lives to the virus and for their families who have lost a loved one, we pray for scientists working 24/7 to develop a vaccine, we pray for our own church, it's leaders, its choir and its congregation, we pray for the world that it may be swiftly healed.

Here are some further prayers that may help:

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

God of compassion, be close to those who are ill, afraid or in isolation.
In their loneliness, be their consolation; in their anxiety, be their hope;
in their darkness, be their light; through him who suffered alone on the cross,
but reigns with you in glory, in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
