Prayers for the Coronavirus pandemic
Let us pray to God, who alone makes us dwell in safety: Lord, hear us, Lord,
graciously hear us.
For all who are affected by coronavirus, through illness or isolation or
anxiety, that they may find relief and recovery:
For those who are guiding our nation at this time, and shaping national
policies, that they may make wise decisions:
For doctors, nurses and medical researchers, that through their skill and
insights many will be restored to health:
For the vulnerable and the fearful, for the gravely ill and the dying, that they
may know your comfort and peace:
We commend ourselves, and all for whom we pray, to the mercy and
protection of God. Merciful Father, accept these prayers for the sake of your
Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.
Prayer for each other. The Bishop writes: “We have a new list of heroes –
every single person in the NHS and all our health services, right at the front
line, with nearly half a million volunteers on top of all the village and
neighbourhood volunteers already working hard; supermarket and food
shop check out staff and shelf stackers; teachers enable our children to
continue to learn; delivery van drivers; and you – reaching out, praying and
caring intensely for all our communities”.
