We pray for the Church: that we will continue to be instruments of Christ’s light for all who live in darkness, of hope for all who know pain, and of love for all who experience rejection.
We pray for the whole of humanity as we face the Covid-19 pandemic that through this time of crisis, we refine our sense of what is important and build a world rich in mercy, bright with care for the vulnerable, enlivened with an appreciation of the natural world and renewed by an awareness of the deeply spiritual nature of life and presence of the Risen Lord.
We pray for all key workers that God will protect them and their families from harm, renew their strength and energy and help them to be instruments of healing and compassion.
We pray for those who have died or are suffering that they and all who have died in Christ may find in the heavenly kingdom.
Pray now for your own particular needs and the needs also of the people who love you most. Amen
