A Prayer for all those affected by Coronavirus – Updated
God of love and hope, you made the world and care for all creation, but the world feels strange right now.
Our hopes and plans for the future, all that we have been working towards, have suddenly changed.
We acknowledge our bewilderment and sense of powerlessness. In the midst of all our anxieties, fears and questions, Lord, be our strength and refuge.
Lord Jesus, you taught us to love our neighbour and care for those in need.
At this time of anxiety we pray for those who are guiding our nation, that they may make wise decisions.
For your protection over all who are sick, or vulnerable, especially for our friends and families.
Help us to be people, not of fear, but of hope, trusting in your unfailing love. Amen.
I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.’ He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. Psalm 91:4
