Call to Pray!

Whether you are self-isolating or going out, find time to pray at this difficult time. We were recently told that God loves us whether or not we receive communion; now we extend that to say God loves us whether or not we attend church.

The list of those who need our prayers can be seemingly endless. add more of you own to this list (they are in no particular order)

  • for yourself
  • for those you love
  • for friends
  • for neighbours
  • for those who cannot visit those in care or in hospital
  • for those who are already ill with other issues
  • for those who are working tirelessly in the NHS & emergency services
  • for food banks and those who use them
  • for charities who will be restricted by lack of footfall and income
  • for businesses in the tourism and leisure sector
  • for workers worried about their income and bills
  • for the future of our economy
  • for those in government making decisions
  • for the scientists advising them
  • for those with mental health issues who may not understand
  • for those who are selfish, thinking only of themselves

Respect others and pray for all

Lord Jesus Christ,
you taught us to love our neighbour,
and to care for those in need
as if we were caring for you.
In this time of anxiety, give us strength
to comfort the fearful, to tend the sick,
and to assure the isolated
of our love, and your love,
for your name’s sake.
Amen.
