Almighty God, turn back, we pray, the spread of COVID19, and have mercy upon your people in the face of the medical, social, economic and political effects of this disease. Bless and heal those who suffer, and bring them safely through their illness. Give to those who are infected courage and wisdom to protect those around them, and grace and trust to ask for help and prayer. Prosper the work of all those involved in the prevention, treatment and cure of this disease, and give our government wisdom and good counsel to make the best possible decisions for the well-being of all your people. This we ask in Jesus’ name. Amen.

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come; thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory, for ever and ever.  Amen.
