Mark 12:31       NIV
The second is this: ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”

Gracious God, as a new week begins, we turn our thoughts and concerns to our brothers and sisters in India as they suffer a critical lack of oxygen supplies and hospital beds, whilst Covid surges through their country. We pray for families desperately seeking treatment for loved ones. We pray for healing for those who are deeply unwell. We pray for all medical professionals trying to cope with the pressure of this emergency. We pray for loved ones in our own communities, anxiously awaiting news of family members overseas, and finally Lord God, we pray that medical supplies, being sent by other nations, will arrive quickly into the areas where they are most needed. Living God, we place the people of India into Your Hands. In the name of Jesus we pray, Amen.
