Prayers in the Time of the COVID-19 Pandemic
To commemorate a year since the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the spread of COVID-19 a pandemic, the World Council of Churches provides this resource for a week of prayer.
This book was designed as a resource for use in prayer groups, congregational services, personal prayer, and in the pastoral accompaniment of those directly affected in different ways by the pandemic. The prayers, messages, reflections, statistics and WCC resources have roots in faith challenged by mourning, fear and uncertainty in different contexts worldwide.
An act of fellowship and commitment
The preparation of this book was an act of fellowship crossing many confessional and cultural boundaries. It brought together regional ecumenical organizations, church leaders, councils of churches, students, and WCC partner organizations. The World Council of Churches is grateful for their inspiring participation and support
The aim is to bring hope and courage in a time of challenge.
