A Prayer from the Diocese of Bath and Wells, England

Loving God,
we pray for all those who are suffering because of the coronavirus,

may they know your healing power.

When we are afraid for ourselves and our loved ones,

give us your strength and courage.

When we feel alone and isolated,

reassure us with a sense of your presence.

Give wisdom to those in authority

and may our community work together for the good of all.

We give thanks for those who care for others

and ask you to bless them in all they do.

We ask this in the name of Jesus, healer and physician. Amen

Psalm 3

Lord, how many adversaries I have! *
how many there are who rise up against me!
How many there are who say of me, *
“There is no help for him in his God.”
But you, O Lord, are a shield about me; *
you are my glory, the one who lifts up my head.
I call aloud upon the Lord, *
and he answers me from his holy hill;
I lie down and go to sleep; *
I wake again, because the Lord sustains me.
I do not fear the multitudes of people *
who set themselves against me all around.
Rise up, O Lord; set me free, O my God; *
surely, you will strike all my enemies across the face,
you will break the teeth of the wicked.
Deliverance belongs to the Lord. *
Your blessing be upon your people!
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: *

as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.
