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