    Prayer at this time Our bishops have sent us this prayer to use:

    Keep us,

    good Lord,

    under the shadow of your mercy

    in this time of uncertainty and distress.

    Sustain and support the anxious and fearful

    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.  Amen.
