Prayers in Lockdown from the CofE and AEC

Posted By : Roz Mitchell Tuesday 24th March 2020

The Church of England have issued the following prayer for us to use in our homes at this difficult time.

 

Keep us, good Lord,

under the shadow of your mercy.

Sustain and support the anxious,

be with those who care for the sick,

and lift up all who are brought low;

that we may find comfort

knowing that nothing can separate us from your love

in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Amen.

The Association of English Cathedrals has also shared the following:

 

A prayer in lockdown

 

The doors of the house where the disciples had met were locked. (John 20.19)

 

Ever present God,

be with us in our isolation,

be close to us in our distancing,

be healing in our sickness,

be joy in our sadness,

be light in our darkness,

be wisdom in our confusion,

be all that is familiar when all is unfamiliar,

that when the doors reopen

we may with the zeal of Pentecost

inhabit our communities

and speak of your goodness

to an emerging world.

For Jesus’ sake.

Amen.
