I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
In times of challenge, it is important to reflect on the things which we can each do as individuals to make the situation better.
At the moment, we are each being asked to protect ourselves and others by regularly washing our hands and by keeping a safe distance from those people who don’t share our homes.
We are also being asked not to buy more than we need and to think about things which we can do to help those around us who are more vulnerable.
These are things which we can all do and do well.
When this time has passed, and we are able to look back on these days and weeks, let us work hard to ensure that we can be proud of the actions we took however small.
Thank you that you strengthen us in our time of need.
Help us to be considerate and think of others.
We ask that you would be with those who are alone at this time.
