Church of the Holy Spirit, Ewloe
Welcome to our site.
Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by the Coronavirus.
God of healing and hope,
in Jesus you meet us in our places of pain and fear.
Look with mercy on those who have contracted the new virus,
on any who are vulnerable, and on all who feel in danger.
Through this time of global concern,
by your Holy Spirit bring out the best not the worst in us.
Make us more aware of our interdependence on each other,
and of the strength that comes from being one body in you.
Through Christ our wounded healer.
Prayer written by The Revd Sam Wells, St Martins in the Field, London
Prayer from the Mothers' Union
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 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.
