22 February


James 5 7-11

Let us pray to God,
who alone makes us dwell in safety:

For all who are affected by coronavirus,
through illness or isolation or anxiety,
that they may find relief and recovery:
For those who are guiding our nation at this time,
and shaping national policies,
that they may make wise decisions:

For those carrying out the vaccination programme and all the volunteers

For doctors, nurses and medical researchers,
that through their skill and insights
many will be restored to health:

For the vulnerable and the fearful,
for the gravely ill and the dying,
that they may know your comfort and peace:

We commend ourselves, and all for whom we pray,
to the mercy and protection
