A second wave of Covid is having a devastating impact in India. Cases are rising at an alarming rate, with more than 350,000 new cases in just 24 hours, according to Reuters.
Please join the members and friends of Redhill United Reformed Church in praying for the situation in India. And if you can, donate to Christian Aid, a charity Redhill URC supports, as they join with other national and international charities to fight poverty and build communities to respond to the medical needs of Covid 19.
Christian Aid have published a prayer we can all use:
I will say of the Lord, ‘You are my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust’.
God of power and might we lift our brothers and sister in India to you.
We pray for your protection,
We pray for your provision,
We pray for the nations of earth to have compassion.
When people are in need, you are our refuge.
When people are scared, you are our refuge.
When people are mourning, you are our refuge.
Compassionate God, draw close to those who seek your refuge today. Amen.
