23rd April – A Prayer for Today

The Government scheme for Furloughed staff was finally launched on Monday. Businesses large and small have applied for financial support, so that employees might receive a proportion of salary. For most businesses the month end payroll is due today or tomorrow, but there remains great uncertainty.

Lord,
We hold in mind all those anxious about money:
those holding out for payday
but unsure if funds will be transferred into their accounts;
those who can’t pay the bills;
all those who are desperate to make ends meet.
Within our society may compassion, fairness and generosity
be the watchwords.
