A prayer to carry with you through the week......
A prayer at Easter:
God of compassion,
be close to those who are ill, afraid or in isolation.
In their loneliness, be their consolation;
in their anxiety, be their hope;
in their darkness, be their light;
and be with me, too, at this difficult time;
through him who suffered alone on the cross,
but reigns with you in glory,
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
