Prayer for Today
.O loving God of life, God of compassion.
As crisis is again shaking our world - we turn to you with our worries,
For our loved ones, for our communities, for jobs and economics,
And how the vulnerable among us will be affected.
Please be especially near to all who are suffering with their mental health.
Please transform uncertainty and fear into love and care.
Give us courage and wisdom and consolation.
Trusting in the the power of the Holy Spirit, we pray for the sick,
and those caring for them. And all those who have lost loved ones.
For the researchers who are working so hard to find a vaccine.
For those who must make difficult decisions that affect us all.
For international co-operation in the service of justice and peace.
For spiritual leadership that is faithful to your will.
For our church community, as we navigate this coming week.
Please help us to hold on to all that is beautiful and true. Amen.
