The following is a prayer written by Glasgow City Mission Chaplain Marion Carson:


Gracious God,

In these days of isolation and darkness

We remember that you are always with us.

You never leave us.

Thank you.

Thank you that Jesus Christ brings light into the darkness, and give us hope to persevere.

But we cry out to you too –

For many are suffering in our city and our land, and our hearts are aching.

There is sickness,






We bring all this to you, conscious of our weakness,

But mindful of your infinite mercy and love.

Help us to play our part in bringing that mercy and love into people’s lives.
