A prayer for all those affected by coronavirus
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.

Investing in your own Wellbeing The restrictions in place are likely to become more severe before they are relaxed, and they are likely to remain in force for months rather than weeks. It is therefore vital for each of us to look after ourselves and invest in our own wellbeing. Globally, locally and personally, the impact of the virus is at best grim and at worst bitterly distressing. If therefore there is any respect in which the radical change in the pattern of daily life offers you welcome space and freedom, please do not feel guilty about it. Please inhabit it gratefully.....I hope you will look for ways to use this ‘time out’ from ordinary routines to maximise your physical, emotional and spiritual fitness — if as seems likely, we are in for a long haul, that will prove important. If you have a garden, get out into it; if you have children at home, spend time with them; read books, watch films, walk the dog — be well and be gentle with yourself
