Prayer in this time of Crisis – Archbishop Mark Coleridge

Almighty and all-merciful God,

lover of the human race, healer of all our wounds,

in whom there is no shadow of death,

save us in this time of crisis;

grant wisdom and courage to our leaders;

watch over all medical people

as they tend the sick and work for a cure;

stir in us a sense of solidarity beyond all isolation;

if our doors are closed, let our hearts be open.

By the power of your love destroy the virus of fear,

that hope may never die

and the light of Easter, the triumph of life,

may shine upon us and the whole world.

Through Jesus Christ, the Lord risen from the dead,

who lives and reigns for ever and ever.

Amen.

 

Holy Mary, health of the sick, pray for us.

St Joseph, guardian of us all, pray for us.

 To Bring Comfort

When this is over may we never again take for granted:

A handshake with a stranger

Good hygiene and care for others

Full shelves at the supermarket

Conversations with neighbours

A crowded theatre

Friday night out

The taste of communion

A routine check-up

Playing sport in a team

Playing music in a group

Coffee with a friend

The stadium roaring

Each deep breath

A boring Thursday

Life itself.

 

When this ends:

May we find we have become the people we wanted to be,

we were called to be,

we hoped to be,

and may we stay that way – better for each other because of the worst.
