Knowing Jesus,

Growing in God’s love

Sharing it with all


It's sometimes hard to know what to pray or find the words, so you may find these helpful.

Perhaps this is the time you have been looking for to get into a pattern of regularly saying some prayers and reading the bible.

For the Christian community

We are not people of fear

we are people of courage.

We are not people who protect our own safety:

we are people who protect our neighbours’ safety.

We are not people of greed:

we are people of generosity.

We are your people God,

giving and loving,

wherever we are,

whatever it costs

For as long as it takes

wherever you call us. Amen.

(Barbara Glasson, President of the Methodist Conference)

Prayer for the world

God of love and hope,

you made the world and care for all creation,

but the world feels strange right now.

The news is full of stories about Coronavirus.

Some people are worried that they might get ill.

Others are anxious for their family and friends.

Be with them and help them to find peace.

We pray for the doctors and nurses and scientists,

and all who are working to discover the right medicines

to help those who are ill.

Thank you that even in these anxious times,

you are with us.

Help us to put our trust in you and keep us safe. Amen.
