A Call to Prayer

The National Council of Churches have invited all of us to pray this prayer at 7pm each day, but especially on Sunday 29 March which we will mark as a National Day of Prayer in this time of crisis:

Gracious God,
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 or grieving.
We pray you will 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 each might 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 on our hearts,we gather now and pray through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.

With the blessing of peace,
The Most Reverend Mark Colreidge
Achbishop of Brisbane
