Be present, Lord, in the homes of all and fill them with laughter, love,
peace and pleasure. May they be places of harmony, happiness,
warmth and welcome, bringing contentment, security and lasting
memories. Protect, nurture, guide and provide, so that each may not
just be a house but, above all, a home – touched by your presence
and sanctified by your grace. Amen
A prayer for medical workers (from Christian Aid)
embodying sacrificial love in these challenging times, putting the welfare of others before their own, staying away from their family and loved ones, comforting the concerned and bereaved, reassuring the anxious and vulnerable, working to heal and restore people who are ill. Be their guide, strength, wisdom and hope.
We pray for those in authority to do right by them, for proper protective equipment to be provided and for their dedication to be met with much gratitude and appreciation when they return home, exhausted.
And we pray for medical workers around the world,where resources and protective equipment are always in short supply, not only now but always. May these extraordinary times lead to deep and necessary changes in how our world works, resulting in a genuine effort to address the profound injustice of life expectancy being determined by geography, to awaken us all to the reality of how connected we all are and to work together to create the community and world we all want to be part of. So help us, God,
