As we come to you on this new day, we acknowledge that you are our unchanging, everlasting God. We thank you that this day your mercies are new, as they are each morning, and that you promise to sustain us by your grace in every circumstance and season of our lives.
Lord, at this time our thoughts are very much with others, with those who suffer, with those who are lonely, with those who are feeling unsure and uncertain. We think of our doctors and nurses, and all those who give of their abilities and their resources to help others.
Lord, would you strengthen our national health service in these days and all who work for it. Would you be with those that we love, both near and far as we live through these days.
Would you bless our church family, wherever we all are today, although scattered in one sense, would you bring us together by your Spirit as we think of each other, and hold each other in prayer at this time.
Father would you pour out your love, your healing, and your grace on us, on our country and on our world. We need you so much. Draw near to us each we pray and speak to our hearts as we long to meet with you.
In Jesus’ name we ask it
