A call to prayer for the nation - SUNDAY 29th 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.

Sunday - Pray for family, friends and loved ones 

We lift to God those we hold in our hearts – praying for their health, their well-being and their sense of hope. We pray that even when loved ones cannot physically be together they would not feel apart. We ask for God’s help in our communicating, our connecting and our caring

Prayer - Week 3 (23-29 November)

Lord Jesus Christ, in these dark and difficult days, we turn our hearts to you. In ages past, you have delivered our nation from disaster. Do it again, we pray. Give wisdom beyond human wisdom to our leaders, Give strength beyond human strength to the NHS and all our frontline workers. Give comfort beyond human comfort to the elderly and all who grieve. Lord Jesus Christ, in these dark and difficult days, turn your face towards us, have mercy upon us, and heal our land, we pray. Amen.
