We have had a prayer request asking us all to pray for NHS and Key workers who work tirelessly to keep us all safe at this time, making sacrifices for us all.
Here is a prayer from the ROOTS for CHURCHES website, which we use in our church for worship preparation and for our work with children.
Holy God, we remember all those who are working to keep things going:
those working in the NHS and those around it helping to keep things working,
those keeping our streets clean and collecting our rubbish,
those harvesting, delivering and selling the food in our shops,
those keeping us secure and our utilities functioning,
those looking after the children of key workers,
those helping to care for the elderly and vulnerable,
clergy of all religions seeking to minister in difficult times…
God in your mercy,
Hear our prayer.
