    Coronavirus - Cumbrian Prayer

    Loving God, as your Son healed the sick
    And brought good news to the needy
    Be with us this day.
    Loving Jesus as you taught us to
    'Do unto others as you would have them do to you'
    Be with all the medical staff this day.
    Loving spirit, your gift is healing,
    Bring your healing fire to our homes, our hospitals and our county,
    But most of all, be with us this day. Amen
