Response of a Christian Council Staff Network Group based in London
Southwark Christian Network supporting colleagues at difficult times like these.
As we prepare to fight Coronavirus through practical measures, Southwark Christian Network is also praying for the health and wellbeing of all staff and their families, for senior management and the many critical decisions they need to make, especially for the front line officers, as well as for all the operational arrangements which need to be put in place to ensure continuity of our services to the wider community.
We extend our love and support to all our colleagues at Southwark council by providing a holistic and confidential support (a listening ear, sign posting, practical, moral, emotional and spiritual) for all as much as possible under the present circumstances.
Whether you are a Christian or not, if you like, you are welcome to join us in prayer for the nations:
God, protect me and my household, my work colleagues, my neighbourhood, my job and country and the rest of the world from Coronavirus. Help me to know that you are sending help, peace, medical science, governmental strategy, relief and healing to the nations. Please take away my fear. Thank you for your compassion that you are holding my heart in the midst of the storm. Help me not to panic and know that you are protecting us. Help me to offer love and support to my community even in these isolating situations. Amen
If you have any personal prayer or support requests, please contact us in confidence at SouthwarkChristianNetwork@southwark.gov.uk.
God is our refuge and strength, an ever present help in trouble (Psalm 46:1)
