  • If you cannot take a day why not take a moment to slow down, be still, notice how you are feeling, listen to your breathing, take a moment to shut off the 'to do' list, sense with your spirit, find a prayer like space without words, remain for a few moments, then sense the presence of God. You may choose to pray with us today 

 Dear God

we pray today for those who like us need your presence and your love

watch over those who feel concerned today

comfort those who are afraid or hurting

give strength to those who are feeling down

grounding to those who need perspective

and hope to those who feel beyond hope

and for the people who care for them as kin and also paid carers

strengthen them to continue or ask for help
