Daily Prayers for use during the Coronavirus outbreak…

‘The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Jesus Christ’  Ephesians 4:5-7

Lord Jesus,

When we feel overwhelmed and anxious by the circumstances of daily life, would you help us to know your presence and your peace.

When life is uncertain – when reality is stranger than fiction – would you take us by the hand and lead us to a place where the ground is solid beneath our feet and we can walk with you along the path of faith, and trust, and hope.

We pray for all who are vulnerable, elderly, lonely, and sick, and we ask for your loving arms to surround them. We thank you for all who serve us, protect us and care for us, and we ask for your hand of protection to watch over them.

In the midst of this Covid pandemic, please give us hearts that are kind, generous, and thoughtful; hands that willingly do your work; a readiness to share the gospel with all whom we meet; and minds that are constantly turned towards you. Amen.

 

Grant, we beseech you, merciful Lord, to your faithful people pardon and peace, that they may be cleansed from all their sins and serve you with a quiet mind; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

 

And may the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with us all, evermore. Amen.
