We are in a great time of crisis so being able to prayerfully uphold out state and nation is one way of supporting our people and their communities.
A Prayer for each day at 1900 hrs, and for Sunday 29 March as we offer prayers for our nation, amidst COVID-19
We give thanks anew for your providence and presence
We prayerfully seek your grace, amidst COVID-19 here and overseas.
We pray for those in need of healing.
We pray for your peace with those who are anxious of grieving
We pray you continue to strengthen and sustain all those who are serving in response.
We pray for your Holy Spirit's discernment amidst the many choices and decisions facing our national, community and medical leaders.
We pray we might each see quickly what more we can do to help those who are vulnerable
This prayer for our nation in the family of nations, with all that is in our hearts, we gather now and pray through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
