The School Prayer
Do all the good you can,
By all the means you can,
In all the ways you can,
In all the places you can,
At all the times you can,
To all the people you can,
As long as ever you can.
The Lord's Prayer
Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come;
thy will be done;
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation;
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
the power and the glory,
for ever and ever.

From the Church of England: A prayer for the world
God of love and hope,
you made the world and care for all creation,
but the world feels strange right now.
The news is full of stories about Coronavirus.
Some people are worried that they might get ill.
Others are anxious for their family and friends.
Be with them and help them to find peace.
We pray for the doctors and nurses and scientists,
and all who are working to discover the right medicines
to help those who are ill.
Thank you that even in these anxious times,
you are with us.
Help us to put our trust in you and keep us safe.

Ideas for Prayer and Worship at Home During COVID-19 Closure
Below is a list of suggestions for prayer and worship at home:
Set aside an area of your room where you can sit comfortably, without distraction, to pray and reflect. You might want to use cushions, decorate with special pictures or Bible quotes or play quiet worhsip music in the background.
Keep a list of things or people you want to pray for. Keep your list somewhere where you notice it often and where it can remind you to pray.
Try creating a prayer chain. Write your prayer on a strip of paper and join it to form one link. For each prayer, add it to the chain. This is a lovely way of keeping track of your prayers and revisiting them when you like.
Spend time in God's word. If you have a Bible at home, see if you can read a chapter or two during a quiet moment of each day. The Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John are a good place to start if you have not spent time like this before. Don't worry if you don't understand every word that you read- you will grow in understanding the more you read, and you can always pray for God's guidence before you begin your reading. If you don't have a Bible at home, you can read it for free online, using Bible Gateway.
Try Bible journaling! If you haven't heard of this before, do some research online. If you want to spend time with God and enjoy art and craft, then this could be for you.
