A Prayer for the Human Family
O God, you made us in your own image and redeemed us through Jesus your Son: Look with compassion on the whole human family; take away the arrogance and hatred which infect our hearts; break down the walls that separate us; unite us in bonds of love; and work through our struggle and confusion accomplish your purposes on earth; that, in your good time, all nations and races may serve you in harmony around your heavenly throne; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. (Book of Common Prayer)
A Prayer for Those Affected by the Coronavirus
O God of compassion, giver of life and health, we pray your healing mercies upon all who are in any way affected by the outbreak of the COVID-19 coronavirus. Comfort and sustain those who have been stricken; relieve their pain, and restore to them your gifts of gladness and strength. Grant to all in authority the courage to make wise decision that are essential for the common good, and strengthen them to lead institutions that care for those whom they serve. Watch over all first responders and those in the medical professions whose duty it is to care for the sick; guard them from all danger, and keep them safe in the knowledge that it is through their sacrifice and service that the health of the whole community is promoted. Mercifully accept these our prayers, O God of all comfort, and our only help in time of need. Amen.
(The Rt. Rev. Eugene Sutton, Bishop of Maryland)

In accordance with the Bishop of Maryland's mandate, Epiphany Church will be closed for the next two weeks. A number of us have been considering what options we might have as a community of spiritual companions and friends. First and foremost, be reminded that the Church is not a building but a fellowship. And, if anyone has need, we are here for one another. Let me repeat, if anyone has need, we are here for one another. In real and practical matters, if you need help with groceries or medications, or if there is a financial or other issue, let us know. All requests will be kept confidential. With your request, we will look to the church community for support and assistance for all our members. No request is too small or too big. Email or call and the wheels will be set in motion.
