    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

  • A Prayer for

    May the Christ who spoke boldly and calmed the seas,

    Grant us unending peace as we pray on our knees.

    May the Father who welcomes the prodigal home,

    Embrace us and be present so we don't feel alone.

    May the Spirit that grants us great courage and power,

    Cast out fear and anxiety in this darkest hour.

    May the unity of God, the great three in one,

    Lead our communities in love even when this is done.

    May the stillness of knowing the great I am,

    Give us security and hope that He has a plan.

    May the resurrected Christ, whom death could not hold,

    Grant us knowledge and hope that death doesn't control.

    May the creator God, who formed all that's around,

    Reveal glory and goodness so we don't feel drowned.

    May God's grace that was revealed through Christ on the cross,

    Lead us on the narrow way so we don't get lost.
