Lord, we are reminded that in the midst of the storm Jesus said to His disciples: “Do not be afraid”. We pray that you may give us your peace in our hearts, our homes and our society.
We pray for all of those in government, both at Stormont and Westminster, who are making decisions; pray that decisions are based on good advice and for the benefit of everyone.
We pray for those who are caring for us in our national health service and in our care homes. Pray that they get good rest and recuperation.
We pray for others who are supporting us: shops and supermarkets, the police, the fire service, paramedics – pray that they are appreciated in all they do.
Give thanks for the peace our country currently enjoys – pray this week for wise heads, words and actions in our community.
