  • Lockdown prayer

  • A prayer in the midst of coronavirus

    God of healing,
    Surround us with your love as together we negotiate the complexities of coronavirus.
    Guide us all as we seek to support one another. Help us to be attentive to the lonely, the isolated, the fearful and those who are ill.
    Mindful of the geographical isolation of many rural communities, we pray for everyone involved in the effective provision of food, medical supplies and pastoral care.
    In the name of Jesus Christ, who walks alongside us in our difficulties.
    Amen.
