Praying for our brothers and sisters around the World

God of all hope we call on you today.

We pray for those who are living in fear: fear of illness, fear for loved one, fear of other’s reactions to them. May your Spirit give us a sense of calmness and peace.

We pray for your church in this time of uncertainty. For those people who are worried about attending worship. For those needing to make decisions in order to care for others. For those who will feel more isolated by not being able to attend. Grant us your wisdom.

Holy God, we remember that you have promised that nothing will separate us from your love – demonstrated to us in Jesus Christ. Help us turn our eyes, hearts and minds to you.

Amen.
