Daily Prayer

Thursday

 

Peace of the running waves to you,

Deep peace of the flowing air to you,

Deep peace of the quiet earth to you

Deep peace of the shining stars to you,

Deep peace of the shades of night to you,

Moon and stars always giving light to you,

Deep peace of Christ, the Son of Peace, to you.

Amen.

Prayers for a range of situations we hope are helpful

A Prayer for the Outbreak

God of compassion,
during this Coronavirus outbreak

be close to those who are ill, afraid or in isolation.
In their loneliness, be their consolation;
in their anxiety, be their hope;
in their darkness, be their light;
through him who suffered alone on the cross,
but reigns with you in glory,
Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.

 

For medical staff and all working at the front line
of fighting the outbreak

Gracious God,
give skill, sympathy and resilience
to all who are caring for the sick,
give your wisdom to all those searching for a cure,

And support all who are working to keep people safe.
Strengthen them with your Spirit,
that through their work many will be restored to health;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.

 

If you know people who are ill

Merciful God,
we entrust to your tender care
those who are ill or in pain,
knowing that whenever danger threatens
your everlasting arms are there to hold them safe.
Especially we hold before you (N…. and N….).

Comfort and heal them,
and restore them to health and strength;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen
.

Prayers for families with children

 

A version of the Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, you are in heaven

and your name is special and wonderful.

May your plans become reality,

and all you desire happen in our world and in yours.

Please give us all we need to get through today.

Forgive us for all we have got wrong,

and help us to do the same for those who hurt us.

Keep us from doing things that are wrong,

and protect us in these hard times.

Everything in heaven and on earth is made by you and belongs to you,

and that’s the way it will be …. Always. Amen

 

A prayer for the world

God of love and hope,
you made the world and care for all creation,
but the world feels strange right now.
The news is full of stories about Coronavirus.
Some people are worried that they might get ill.
Others are anxious for their family and friends.
Be with them and help them to find peace.
We pray for the doctors and nurses and scientists,
and all who are working to discover the right medicines
to help those who are ill.
Thank you that even in these anxious times,
you are with us.
Help us to put our trust in you and keep us safe.
Amen.

 

A bedtime prayer

Loving God, you are always with me.
You are with me in the day and in the night.
You are with me when I’m happy and when I’m sad.
You are with me when I’m healthy and when I am ill.
You are with me when I am peaceful and when I am worried.
Today I am feeling (name how you are feeling) because (reasons you are feeling this way).

Tonight, I especially want to ask you to look after (name the people you want God to help).
Help me to remember that you love me and are with me in everything tonight and always.
Amen.
