Let us hold each other in prayer and support each other with practical action where we can.

Gracious God, we give thanks anew for your providence and presence.
We prayerfully seek your grace, as COVID-19 spreads its way around the world.
We pray for those in need of healing, and for individuals and communities especially vulnerable.
We pray for your peace with those who are anxious or grieving.
We pray you will strengthen and sustain all those who are serving in a myriad of ways, as the days turn into weeks, and the weeks into months.
We pray for your Holy Spirit’s discernment amidst the many choices and decisions facing our political leaders, medical teams and specialists, churches and community agencies.
We give thanks for acts of compassion, kindness and generosity springing up in our communities. 
We pray for our DIAKONIA family at this time, for safety, and strength, in a time of crisis.
All of our prayers and hopes are offered in confidence in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Yours in Christ

President Sandy Boyce
