A Quiet Service

In the name of Christ; God's grace, mercy and peace be with yours

In our scattered lives we look to meet with God. Let us recognise THE Presence with us.

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.

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 strength
to comfort the fearful, to tend the sick,
and to assure the isolated
of our love, and your love,
for your name’s sake.
Amen.

Heavenly Father, you anointed your Son Jesus Christ with the Holy Spirit and with power to bring to us the blessings of your kingdom. Anoint your Church with the same Holy Spirit, that we who share in his suffering and victory may bear witness to the gospel of salvation; through Jesus Christ, your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Let us pray to the Lord,
who is our refuge and stronghold.

For the health and well-being of our nation,
that all who are fearful and anxious
may be at peace and free from worry:


Lord, God,
Hear us and help us.

For the isolated and housebound,
that we may be alert to their needs,
and care for them in their vulnerability:


Lord, God,
Hear us and help us. For our homes and families,
our schools and young people,
and all in any kind of need or distress:


Lord, God,
Hear us and help us.

For a blessing on our local community,
that our neighbourhoods may be places of trust and friendship,
where all are known and cared for:


Lord, God,
Hear us and help us.

 

As our Saviour taught us, so we pray the Lord's Prayer:

 

Final Prayer

Eternal God, our beginning and our end, accompany us in this day's journey. Dawn on our darkness, open our eyes to praise you for your creation and to see the work you set before us today. Take us and use us to bring to others the new life you give in Jesus Christ our Lord. God of our pilgrimage, you have led us to the living water: refresh us and sustain us as we go forward on our journey, in the name of Jesus the cross bearer. Amen.
