A few have ads that will pop up - hopefully these won't be too distracting. The first hymn has applause at the end, so try and  close the clip before that! This is a new venture...all feedback will be gratefully received.

PRAYERS Written by Martha

Heavenly Father, your Son, Jesus Christ has challenged death and the powers of darkness, and brings new life to all who turn to him.  Open our eyes and enter our hearts that we may know and receive your healing presence in these dark and difficult times. Show us your light, shelter us with your comfort and surround us with your love, that our despair will turn to hope, our weakness to strength and our doubts to faith. 

We pray for the church, our bishops priests and other leaders, as they continue their work of proclaiming the gospel of Christ to the world.  May they and all who serve you provide a beacon of hope to a suffering world.
 

We pray for the leaders of nations. that they may work together for the common good as the outbreak spreads.  Grant those in government the strength and the will to act with wisdom, compassion and service to all.
 

Be with all who are affected by the coronavirus around the world.  We particularly remember Prime Minister Boris Johnson, his Royal Highness Prince Charles and those close to them.  Bring comfort and healing to those who are sick with the virus. Grant courage and strength to first responders, health care workers and all who stand on the front line in providing care.   
 

We pray for those whose hope is lost, remembering the homeless, those in prison, and those who face financial hardship.  Sustain and support the anxious. Be with the bereaved and those who care for sick loved ones. Lift up all who are brought low, that we might find comfort knowing that nothing can separate us from your love, through Jesus Christ our Lord,

Amen
