Let us pray to the Lord
Collect for the week:
God of unchangeable power,
You have revealed Yourself to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit:
keep us firm in this faith
that we may praise and bless Your Holy Name,
for you are one God,
living and reigning in glory now and for ever.
Gracious and Compassionate God,
heal our world from the devastating impact
of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Direct the minds of the medical fraternity
and all who are tirelessly working for a cure.
Strengthen those that selflessly provide care
and assistance to the destitute and ill.
Give PEACE to the anxious and worried;
VISION to those who have lost faith;
ASSURANCE of your love and power
to those who fear the future.
We pray this in the name of Jesus,our Lord, the risen Christ.
