Prayers including the collect and a prayer for the nation during this Coronavirus pandemic:

Risen Christ, faithful shepherd of your Father’s sheep; teach us to hear your voice and to follow your command, that all your people may be gathered into one flock, to the glory of God, the Father. Amen

Loving God, as your Son healed the sick and brought good news to the needy be with us this day. Loving Jesus as you taught us to ‘do unto others as you would have them do to you’ be with all the medical staff this day. Loving spirit, your gift is healing, bring your healing fire to our homes, our hospitals and our county, but most of all, be with us this day. Amen

I hope this will be of some use. With love and prayers, Rev Eileen
