A Prayer for Today

Calming of the Storm fresco

Lord Jesus,

In the midst of a storm,

You said, ‘Peace be still.’

Bid our anxious fears subside,

Sustain your church in faith, hope and love,

Bring our nation through this tumult,

Grant wisdom to those with heavy responsibilities,

And healing and hope to those who are infected.



Words: The Revd John Proctor, General Secretary, The United Reformed Church
