A PRAYER FOR EVERYONE AT THIS DIFFICULT TIME

 

God of healing and of hope

In Jesus you meet us in our places of pain and fear.

Look with mercy on those who have contracted the new virus,

On any who are vulnerable, and on all who feel in danger.

Through this time of global concern, by your Holy Spirit

Bring out that which is best in us, not what is worst.

Make us more aware of our interdependence on each other,

And of the strength that comes from being one body in you.

Through Christ our wounded healer. Amen.
