A call to prayer for the nation - SATURDAY 14th November

The Archbishops of Canterbury and York called the Church of England to prayer for the Nation during the second lockdown. The suggestion is that as many of us as possible unite to do this at 6pm each day.

Saturday Pray for all who are grieving, and all suffering with physical and mental ill-health 

‘Lord the one you love is ill….’ John 11 v 3 We bring to God all those who suffer in body, mind, spirit or with grief. We ask that in God’s great loving kindness they might know God’s sustaining presence amidst their pain. We pray for those who are stretched beyond their own capacity to cope and remain hopeful – that in the roar of these waterfalls God would bring a sense of coherence, comfort and strength.

Prayer - Week 1 (9-15 November)

Loving God, at this time of crisis when so many are suffering, we pray for our nation and our world. Give our leaders wisdom, our Health Service strength, our people hope. Lead us through these parched  and difficult days to the fresh springs of joy and comfort that we find in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
