Psalm 90

Hymn    Lead us heavenly Father, lead us

Reading     1 Thessalonians 5: 1 – 11

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

Heavenly Lord, you long for the world’s salvation: stir us from apathy, restrain us from excess and revive in us new hope that all creation will one day be healed  through Jesus Christ our Saviour. 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
