Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy
in this time of uncertainty and
Sustain and support the anxious and
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.
Lord Jesus Christ,
you taught us to love our neighbour,
and to care for those in need
as if we were caring for you.
In this time of anxiety, give us
to comfort the fearful, to tend the
and to assure the isolated
of our love, and your love,
for your name’s sake.
God of compassion,
be close to those who are ill, afraid
or in isolation.
In their loneliness, be their
in their anxiety, be their hope;
in their darkness, be their light;
through him who suffered alone on the cross,
but reigns with you in glory,
Jesus Christ our Lord.
For those who are ill
we entrust to your tender care
those who are ill or in pain,
knowing that whenever danger
your everlasting arms are there to
hold them safe.
Comfort and heal them,
and restore them to health and

For hospital staff and

that through their work many will be
restored to health;
