In response to reaching the terrible milestone of 100,000 deaths from COVID-19, the Archbishops invite all to call on God in Prayer. Starting on 1 February we invite you to set aside time every evening to pray, particularly at 6pm each day. More than ever, this is a time when we need to love each other. Prayer is an expression of love.

How can you get involved?

Use the Church of England free resources to pray for our nation every day at 6pm – see website here

Prayer for the nation | The Church of England

We remember before God those who have died and we pray that God’s love will surround all who mourn them, now and always

 Gracious God,
 as we remember before you the thousands who have died,
 surround us and all who mourn with your strong compassion.
 Be gentle with us in our grief,
 protect us from despair,
 and give us grace to persevere
 and face the future with hope
 in Jesus Christ our risen Lord.
