Prayers as we enter a second "Lock down" in England (November 2020):

Let us pray to the Lord, 
who is our refuge and stronghold.  
For the health and well-being of our nation, 
that all who are fearful and anxious 
may be at peace and free from worry: 
Lord, hear us, 
Lord, graciously hear us. 

For the isolated and housebound, 
that we may be alert to their needs ,
and care for them in their vulnerability: 
Lord, hear us, 
Lord, graciously hear us. 

For our homes and families, 
our schools and young people, 
and all in any kind of need or distress: 
Lord, hear us, 
Lord, graciously hear us. 

For a blessing on our local community, 
that our neighbourhoods may be 
places of trust and friendship ,
where all are known and cared for: 
Lord, hear us, 
Lord, graciously hear us. 

We commend ourselves, 
and all for whom we pray, 
to the mercy and protection of God. 
Merciful Father, 
accept these prayers 
for the sake of your Son, 
our Saviour Jesus Christ. 
Amen.
