Join Anglicans around the world and light a lamp on Sunday, 22 March 2010 at 7pm. Pray together, at that time for those who have been severely affected by the Coronavirus. Pray for those who are sick and for the families of those who have died. Pray for those who feel isolated and lonely. Pray for those who feel invincible and pray for each other.
Creator, God of the universe, we know that we have not been abandoned and that you are always present to us. Help us to be hopeful in the midst of fear and suffering. Allow us to find ways to reach out to others and share the light of the world. Reassure us with your promise of a new dawn. Encourage us to seek new ways to live less selfishly. Enable us to seek solutions that are as real for the poor and struggling as they are for the rich and the powerful. Remind us of your dreams for the whole of humanity. Enlighten us with your wisdom and strength. Lover of souls, hear our prayer. Amen.
