Looking for some support and encouragement during this pandemic? Perhaps one of the prayers or links to hymns (below) will help provide an element of joy in the midst of all the transition and uncertainty we are facing right now.
Below is a link to a COVID-19 hymn from The Rev. Carolyn Winfrey Gillette, whose hymns we have sung at St. Timothy’s, Agincourt, from time to time. The Rev. Carolyn is an ordained Presbyterian minister based in Owego, NY.
Prayers About the Pandemic from The Church of England
Keep us, good Lord, under the shadow of your mercy in this time of uncertainty and distress. Sustain and support the anxious and fearful, and lift up all who are brought low; that we may rejoice in your comfort knowing that nothing can separate us from your love in Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen. Lord Jesus Christ, you taught us to love our neighbour, and to care for those in need as if we were caring for you. In this time of anxiety, give us strength to comfort the fearful, to tend the sick, and to assure the isolated of our love, and your love, for your name’s sake. Amen. God of compassion, be close to those who are ill, afraid or in isolation. In their loneliness, be their consolation; in their anxiety, be their hope; in their darkness, be their light; through him who suffered alone on the cross, but reigns with you in glory, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
