Prayer

“Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.  They will soar on wings like eagles,  they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint”  Isaiah 40:31

Lord we pray for all those in leadership in these times.  Give your strength to medical and care staff;  your wisdom to those in government and your hope to those with responsibilities in churches, organisations and businesses.  Help us to trust you for good things, and to be a source of encouragement and consolation for those in need at this time.  For Jesus’ sake, Amen.
