Prayer and reflections

As churches are no longer able to meet together in buildings, we want to encourage and help people to pray, both within our own churches and in the wider community.   This section provides many ideas that could be used to lead people to prayer, both personally and corporately.

Praying to God through the pandemic

Written by Patrick Coghlan, minister at Worstead Baptist Church in Meeting Hill (North Norfolk)

Loving God,

I pray that in the stillness, brought to so many through the pandemic, we might experience you in all your fullness.

I pray that in the loneliness, many are experiencing as a result of lock-down or bereavement, we might be very aware of your presence and receive your comfort.

I pray that in the despair, experienced by many through livelihoods being challenged as a result of the tough regulations for everyone’s safety, we might experience your provision.

I pray that in the suffering, experienced by so many, in so many different ways, during these times, that we might be filled with hope for the future.

I pray that in the harsh reality of the world pandemic, we might experience your love shining through.

I pray that in the midst of Covid 19, as we become more aware of our own mortality, we might also give more thought to our eternal futures.

I pray that in this time of sickness, we might experience your spiritual healing, through a personal relationship with Jesus.

I pray for all those who are giving so much during these difficult times: help me to give what I can to serve you, in serving others.

Thank you that you are here with us, providing blessings amongst the hardship: help us to reach the light at the end of the tunnel.

In Jesus’ name.
