I have been using this prayer daily since it appeared on the website. Prayer continues unbroken in all circumstances and
situations. We pray and worship in times of distress and confusion no less than in times of peace and prosperity.

In prayer we look not at the problems that we face but at God whose love for us in Christ Jesus is greater than any problem or
adversity that we face. When we pray in times such as these we are reminded that we are pilgrims here on earth but are citizens
of heaven.

As we journey through this world, what matters most is not the adversities that we face in life, but how we face the adversities of
life. We have seen how many people have, in this time of crisis, responded with generosity of spirit, have looked out not just for
themselves but for their neighbours. The same crisis has caused others to turn in on themselves and away from neighbours in

As Followers of Jesus our response to good fortune and ill fortune, to times of joy and times of crisis, is exactly the same: we turn
to God in prayer and worship; we look for and serve Christ in our neighbour. We respond to life, all of life, as Christians which
means as children of the Father.

God bless you and all those you love,

Prayer for the Month
Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy.
Sustain and support the anxious,
be with those who care for the sick,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may find comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
This month’s prayer is from the Church of England website. I recommend the site - there are links to a weekly act of worship for
each Sunday as well as resources for daily prayer.
