A Prayer for the time of COVID-19 from the Mothers’ Union

Loving Lord,
we pray for your
love and compassion
to abound as we walk
through this
challenging season.

We ask for wisdom for those who bear the load
of making decisions with widespread consequences.

We pray for those
who are suffering
with sickness and
for all who are
caring for them.

We ask for protection
for the elderly and
vulnerable not to
succumb to the risks
of the virus.

We pray for misinformation to be curbed
that fear may take no hold in hearts and minds.

As we exercise the good sense
that you in your mercy provide
may we also approach each
day in faith and peace,
trusting in the truth
of your goodness
towards us. Amen
