Bishop Curry Joins in Calls to Pray for the President and First Lady

Bishop Curry Joins in Calls to Pray for the President and First Lady

From the Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs:

Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Michael Curry has issued the following statement:

During this time of the COVID-19 pandemic I continue to pray for all affected by this virus in any way.

At this particular moment I ask that all Episcopalians also pray for the President and First Lady, and all in the White House or Government who have been infected by this virus.

 

O God of heavenly powers, by the might of your command you drive away from our bodies all sickness and all infirmity: Be present in your goodness with your children, the President and First Lady, and all in the White House or Government who have been infected by this virus, that their weakness may be banished and their strength restored; and that, their health being renewed, they may bless your holy Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

     – For Recovery from Sickness, Book of Common Prayer, p. 458

Yes, we should all follow the example of Bishop Curry. I will pray.

Lord, hear our prayers. Thank you Bishop Curry for this. We own you from here in Spain with our intentions.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
