This week please pray:

For all those struggling to cope with the Covid19 epidemic, whose lives have been disrupted in many ways:

those who are ill, both here and elsewhere, and their families;

those who have lost loved ones;

those who have medical treatment cancelled or postponed because of the strain on the NHS;

those who are unable to visit family in care homes because of restrictions in place to try to keep them safe;

for all those whose businesses or employment is at risk because of travel restrictions, thinking particularly of those working in the travel, hospitality and tourism sectors;

the people of Italy living under enormous restrictions to their normal lives. Give thanks for those who are working to develop a vaccine and effective treatments for the problem;

for doctors, nurses and health care assistants working hard to care for those who need it;

for neighbours who offer to bring shopping to those who are self-isolating or in quarantine.

That we remember that, whatever befalls us, we are in God’s hands, safe and loved
“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Romans 8:38-39
