A prayer for Sunday April 26th

God of love and grace
as we worship you today
without the physical closeness
of our usual congregations
we pray that you will uphold your Church
in these difficult days.
We thank you especially for the gift of 'A Methodist Way of Life'
praying that through this pattern of prayer, service and witness
we will have a new understanding of community
and watch over each other each day in love.
Strengthen us with the patience, the discipline and the will
to follow you.
Shine your guiding light into our lives
and bring the Methodist people to a new and resurrected life
in Jesus we pray
