 A prayer for the current situation   

 

God of love,
Circle us with your grace and hope.
Protect we pray all those who suffer
In body, mind or spirit.
Protect and strengthen all those working in our health services,
all those in our local and national governments with planning responsibilities,
all local businesses and those with financial worries
all those who are facing an increase in racism or other abuse
and all those who are already isolated or alone.
Fill our benefice, our diocese, our country and our world 
With your spirit of love and compassion.
May the light of life burn brightly in our communities,
And may we know the peace that passes all understanding.

Amen.
