Covid 19 Infections Prayer Request

My dear Clergy,

We continue to pray for all those infected and affected with the Coronavirus. We pray for those who are suffering ill health, whether at home or in hospital. We pray for those who are in a coma and those on a ventilator. We pray for homes and families where it is impossible for people to separate themselves and be in self-isolation.

We continue to pray for all frontline workers in our hospitals, clinics, day hospitals, mortuaries, undertakers, ambulance services, therapists. We pray for all other frontline workers in various industries, making our lives easier. Among frontline workers are our clergy. I ask for your prayers for the Revd Edwin Arrison, his wife Desiree and their daughters, as well as Revd Enrico Heuvel who have contracted the virus. They are self-isolating at home.

Tomorrow is the 100th day of Lockdown. The Diocese has prepared a special YouTube Service of Healing for Sunday. In the service we pray for people who have tested positive with the coronavirus and we lift up to God those who have died as a result of complications of the coronavirus. It will be distributed to clergy via our Archdeacons. It will also be on our website. Do share it widely.

We pray for all seeking healing. I thank God that you are faith-filled but please speak to me if you become distressed. We have counsellors that we can refer you to for a chat should you prefer that, rather than speaking to a colleague.

I place you, your loved ones and congregations in the loving care of Jesus as you journey through this weekend.

Love, Peace, Prayers and Blessings,

Bishop Margaret B Vertue
