A prayer for these times of isolation

 ‘For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come… will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.’ (Romans 8:38-39)


God of heaven and earth, 

in these times of isolation, 

apart from loved ones 

distant from friends 

away from neighbours 

thank you that there is nothing 

in all of creation, 

not even coronavirus, 

that is able to separate us from your love.  


And may your love that never fails 

continue to be shared 

through the kindness of strangers 

looking out for each other, 

for neighbours near and far 

all recognising our shared vulnerability, 

each of us grateful for every breath, 

and willing everyone to know the gift 

of a full and healthy life. 

Keep us all in your care.  

Amen.
