Whose Son Jesus Christ suffered for us on the Cross
that we might have eternal life,
be present with us in our suffering as we endure the pandemic.
Be present to the sick;
be present to the dying;
be present to the bereaved.
We know that in your love all things shall be made whole.
Strengthen in us that hope
which comes only from faith in your unfailing love.
This we ask through your Son our Saviour Jesus Christ,
who reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
ever one God.
Rt Hon. Justin Welby
