Prayer Resources for the time of Corona Virus Crisis

Prayer for use during Corona virus crisis                                                                           

 Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy.
Sustain and support the anxious,
be with those who care for the sick,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may find comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
