A prayer for those who have died from the Coronavirus
Loving and merciful God,
we pray for the souls of all who have died during the Coronavirus pandemic;
for those of all ages, young and old, whose lives have been cut short;
for those who through difficult circumstances died alone;
for those whose death was sudden and with no time to prepare for it.
we hold up these precious lives to you,
giving thanks for the love that has been given and received.
May they be granted peace, now and forever.
