23 March 2021 is the first anniversary of the UK lockdown and will be a National Day of Reflection, when the nation is invited to pause for one minute at midday, and pray and reflect on the year that has passed.
Dean Andrew Nunn has written a prayer for the day.
Christ yesterday and today, the beginning and the end,
Alpha and Omega, all time belongs to him, and all ages.
From the Easter Vigil, Common Worship
God of all that has been, that is, that is to come
as we reflect on the year that has past,
those we have lost,
those we have missed,
the contact not made,
the hopes dashed,
new things discovered,
new opportunities seized,
new love embraced,
we thank you that you have been with us
and brought us to this day.
Stay with us
as we step into your future
with faith and hope and love
and in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.
