Coronavirus – Prayer wherever we are

Some of us at St Columba’s have agreed to pray together (wherever we are… on the bus, at work or at home) at 12:00 midday (or if that is not possible at 6:00 pm) for the current situation that we face together.
Remember that there will be people praying at the same time with the same purpose. Thank you if you can join us.

Jesus, people came to you when they were in trouble or in pain.
Friends carried them, strangers told you about them, some met you walking along the road…
In this time of uncertainty hear us now as we bring to you those who are sick across the world. Sustain and support those involved in care and research.
Guide all who make decisions about health and wellbeing in this community and beyond.
Be with the anxious – remind us not to be afraid, but to trust in you, knowing that nothing can separate us from your love. Amen

You may also wish to pray the Lord’s prayer…
