A call to prayer for the nation - WEDNESDAY 18th 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.

Wednesday - Pray for businesses, the workplace and economic wellbeing 

In this time of great challenge, we pray for the economic wellbeing of the country. 

We remember before God those who face great uncertainty in their work. We lift before God those who have lost their jobs and face an uncertain and difficult future. We pray for a renewed commitment to our common life together.

Prayer - Week 2 (16-22 November)

Loving Father God,
be with us in our distress;
be with our families, friends, and neighbours,
our country and our world.
Give health to the sick,
hope to the fearful,
and comfort to mourners.
Give wisdom to our frontline and key workers,
insight to our Government,
and patience to us all.
Overcome disease with the power of your new life,
through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.
