Thought for the day 07/04/2020

It is said that as many as 24 million people watched the Queens broadcast to the nation on Sunday night, and that does not include those who watched online or listened on the radio.
Among her many wise words she said this;
‘though self-isolating may at times be hard, many people of all faiths, and of none, are discovering that it presents an opportunity to slow down, pause and reflect, in prayer or meditation’.
Holy week, the week leading up to Easter when Christians remember the death and resurrection of Jesus, provides the perfect time to do this, set in the context of Coronavirus, which has afflicted so many; even over the past 24 hours we have seen Boris Johnson admitted to hospital and then to intensive care.
Drawing those thoughts together here is a prayer for Mr Johnson, all others suffering from Coronavirus and the wonderful NHS staff who are treating and supporting them:
“Heavenly Father,
We hold before you all impacted by the coronavirus at this present time.
We pray especially for our Prime Minister, Boris Johnson,
As he continues to suffer from Covid-19;
We ask your blessing on those treating and caring for him,
And for all our National Health Service staff and volunteers;
And we pray your wisdom for him and for all in leadership in our society,
That they may guard and guide us through this present crisis.
For the sake of Jesus who suffered, died and rose for us.
Amen.”
Jes
