In this time of a national and international health crisis, our faith is in Jesus Christ, who experienced suffering and triumphed over it. We can pray for all those who have been bereaved and those who are ill in hospital or recovering at home from the effects of the COVID-19. 

Pray for all who are providing essential services and the provision of care by healthcare workers.

Pray for all staff, pupils and students who have returned to schools, colleges and universities in September.

Pray for the well-being of children and young people who have missed social interaction with friends in recent months and that they will find friendships have endured through the lockdown.

Pray for wisdom for those with responsibility in making decisions affecting public life.

Pray for those facing uncertainty about jobs and what happens next.

The Bible says: "Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you." 1 Peter 5 verse 7

Church of England freephone message


 There is a freephone service called "Daily Hope" which is provided by       the Church of England. The call is free so anyone can make use of this,   particularly useful to people who may not have access to the internet.

 This could be a way to bless elderly relatives and friends who can listen   on speaker phone so it feels there is someone else in the room.     Please try it yourself so you can explain how it works.
