Higham Ferrers Mothers' Union
As our members and their families around the world face self-isolation and lockdown we know how important it is for us all to remain as active as we can, both physically and mentally.
we pray for your love and compassion to abound
as we walk though this challenging season.
Think of some practical ways that you can show
God’s love and compassion at this time
We ask for wisdom for those who bear the load
of making decisions with widespread consequences.
Take a moment to pray for those in positions of
influence at local, national and international levels
We pray for those who are suffering with sickness
and for all who are caring for them
Pray particularly for any known to you personally,
including those who work in the health profession
We ask for protection for the elderly and vulnerable
to not succumb to the risks of virus.
Consider if there is anything helpful you can do for
those in this category – shopping or other errands?
We pray for misinformation to be curbed
that fear may take no hold in hearts and minds.
Take any opportunity to reassure those who are feeling
anxious, especially over unsubstantiated concerns
As we exercise the good sense that you in your mercy provide
may we also approach each day in faith and peace,
trusting in the truth of your goodness towards us. Amen
Give thanks to God for his constant presence with us through
every circumstance of life
