In this time of the chaplaincy being closed, but all our people being open to God’s care and love, let us pray:
Keep us, good Lord,
under the shelter 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.
‘God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in time of trouble. Therefore, we will not fear.’ Psalm 46 v 1- 2
A prayer for our world
Almighty Father, creator and redeemer
Please look upon your world
Give us guidance and your power to overcome this virus,
Be alongside those who are vulnerable and anxious;
And we ask for your safety and healing of individuals, communities and nations.
And on this campus help us to care for each other;
In Jesus name.
