Pray At Home

Pray At Home

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, it has now become significantly more difficult to gather for public services. However, this does not prevent us from being able to pray and worship where you are, either on your own or as a household.

Lord Jesus Christ,
you taught us to love our neighbour,
and to care for those in need
as if we were caring for you.
In this time of anxiety, give us strength
to comfort the fearful, to tend the sick,
and to assure the isolated
of our love, and your love,
for your name’s sake.
Amen.
