A prayer for regular use during the Stay-at-Home period written by The Very Reverend Andrew Nunn, Dean of Southwark.

Ever present God,

be with us in our isolation,

be close to us in our distancing,

be healing in our sickness,

be joy in our sadness,

be light in our darkness,

be wisdom in our confusion,

be all that is familiar when all is unfamiliar,

that when the doors reopen

we may, with the zeal of Pentecost,

inhabit our communities

and speak of your goodness to an emerging world.

For Jesus’ sake. Amen.
