Prayers for use during the Coronavirus Outbreak:🙏
Keep us, good Lord,under the shadow of Your mercy
in this time of uncertainty and distress.

knowing that nothing can separate us
from Your love in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Lord Jesus Christ,
You taught us to love our neighbour,

In this time of anxiety, give us strength

of our love, and Your love,for Your name’s sake.
