Bishop Philip writes: I invite you to join me for 24 HOURS WITH THE LORD.
Join in as much of the programme as possible, in your own parish or at St John’s Cathedral in Portsmouth, in person or by live-stream:
Here are some of the intentions you could bring to the Lord:
a speedy end to the pandemic
the protection of all, especially our family and friends
the health of the sick and those who care for them
those suffering financially or in other ways
patients in hospitals and the residents of care-homes
all medical staff and key workers
government leaders, scientists and advisors
the discovery of an effective, ethically sourced, vaccine
patience, perseverance and mental well-being
all who have died and those who mourn them.
Let’s have great faith in the steadfast love of God who never abandons His people in time of trial.
In these days during which our country and our world is gravely stricken by the COVID-19 virus, we implore the Lord to bring a speedy end to this pandemic.
