Lord God, we pray for all who have a ministry of welcome, that
we may see you in others and hear and share your word. In this
time of pandemic we pray for all who work in the hospitality
industry, in food and drink production, and for all people in the
world without clean water or sufficient food. We pray too for
teachers and educators, counsellors and all in holy orders, that
your word may be known in the world.

Merciful Father, we pray for the sick and all who suffer,
remembering those known to us in a moment of quiet…
We commit into your hands all who are isolated, alone or have
no one to pray for them, and we ask for your wisdom, energy
and courage for scientists, leaders and all who work in health
and social care, as they respond to the COVID-19 pandemic

Heavenly Father, we pray for all who are dying and the
bereaved, that they may take courage from word of your eternal
kingdom. We pray especially for those who have lost loved
ones without having been able to be with them. And for all
facing grief in isolation.
Amen
