Prayers During A Tme of Pandemic

Corrymeela is a movement of people based in Northern Ireland. Their website reveals that they rally around one inspirational idea: ‘Together is better’.

Every year they welcome over 8,000 people from all walks of life, to their Ballycastle home and into  programmes in communities around Northern Ireland. Their vision and work is inspiring especially in a time when people around the world are having to stay apart and at distance:

“We deeply believe that everyone is welcome, whatever their background, ethnicity, faith, sexuality or nationality. We welcome everyone — because together is better.

From programmes enabling young people to tackle sectarianism, to supporting survivors of racism and homophobia, we work relentlessly to tackle intolerance, hatred and oppression. We challenge injustice — because together is better.

As we hear each other’s story, we learn how to live well with each other. We change ourselves — because together is better”.

We thank them for the following prayers that are on their site for their own prayer and for others to use as a resource:
