Prayer for Week 16 (13-19 April 2020)
A Prayer in the light of Easter (taken from the Church of Scotland website):
Lord, it feels as if we’ve been walking in the Good Friday shadow of the cross.
Feeling disorientated, concerned and filled with heartache.
Praying for healing for those poorly, whether government leader or more personally known; and comfort for those bereaved.
Expressing thanks for the selfless dedication of NHS staff, those delivering social care, and everyone ensuring that essential services and supplies are maintained, in company with those who volunteer.
Lord, as we journey on, help us now to embrace the dawning Easter joy of the cross.
Encountering, like the first disciples, the transforming wonder of Christ’s resurrection.
Accepting, like the first disciples, that it may take time to comprehend the reality of Easter.
