At times like this it can be very difficult to pray, not only because we struggle to find the right words to say but also because we feel 'stuck', distant, fearful and immobilised. It is not easy being cut off physically from each other, from loved ones, and from our church building. None of us have experienced anything like this before - we are in new territory so it is important that we support each other and find new ways to connect and to keep each other strong.
Attached are some prayers from the Church of England which you may feel helpful. Sometimes, when our minds are blank it can be helpful to draw on prayers laid before us.
