We have been using the UNITE714 prayers to pray about the Coronavirus pandemic, but as we enter a new phase, with the re-opening of public worship, we encourage you to use the simple prayer below whenever we meet; be it together in a service on a Sunday, or in our Connect groups, or in our daily prayer meetings.
Almighty and loving Father,
We humbly come before you asking you to eradicate COVID19.
We hold before you those who are working day and night to keep us safe, asking that you would give them strength to keep going.
Grant healing to all who are suffering in body, mind or spirit,
and comfort to those who are grieving.
Give wisdom to those in authority,
and breakthrough to those who are looking for a cure.
Enable your people to stand firm through these challenging times, being faithful witnesses to your unchanging love.
Have mercy on our nation Father. Pour out your Spirit and draw people’s hearts back to you.
We ask all of this for the glory of your name.
