The Parish of Becontree South, Rev Faye. Daily reading via their YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCX_zK9VZXzmYYXMdnxe9YqA

Lord Jesus Christ, you taught us to love our neighbour, and to care for those in need as if we were caring for you. In this time of anxiety, give us strength to comfort the fearful, to tend the sick, and to assure the isolated of our love, and your love, for your name’s sake. Amen.

Keep us, good Lord, under the shadow of your mercy in this time of uncertainty and distress. Sustain and support the anxious and fearful, and lift up all who are brought low;that we may rejoice in your comfort knowing that nothing can separate us from your love in Christ Jesus our  Lord. Amen.
