Churches Together in Leicester and Leicestershire: July 2020
A PRAYER FOR THOSE WITHIN THE LEICESTER LOCKDOWN ZONE
ever-present with your people
through the highs and lows of life,
we cry out to you for Leicester
in the face of prolonged suffering and hardship
as a result of lockdown.
Grant us peace in our frustration;
strength to our NHS and all who are called to care and help;
wisdom to our city leaders;
and discernment for our churches in offering the medicine of your gospel.
Bless all caught in the grip of Covid-19 and comfort the grieving.
In the name of the One who gives us hope,
Jesus Christ. Amen.
