Prayer for Lockdown

28 Mar 2020, 12:15 a.m.

🙏 A prayer in #LockdownUK 🙏

The doors of the house where the disciples had met were locked. (John 20.19)

Ever present God,

be with us in our isolation,

be close to us in our distancing,

be healing in our sickness,

be joy in our sadness,

be light in our darkness,

be wisdom in our confusion,

be all that is familiar when all is unfamiliar,

that when the doors reopen

we may with the zeal of Pentecost

inhabit our communities

and speak of your goodness

to an emerging world.

For Jesus’ sake.


The Very Revd Andrew Nunn

Dean of Southwark
