The Glentoran Club Chaplain, Rev, David Thompson has offered the following prayer for those among the Glentoran and East Belfast families who are anxious, alone or troubled during this very difficult time for our society.
A prayer for this interrupted season of life.
We pray for your protection on the football family in Northern Ireland in this interrupted season of life.
We pray for all Clubs, their players, staff, officials, volunteers, sponsors, supporters and their loved ones.
We pray for football administrators at the IFA and NIFL, remembering them and their families.
Give those with significant responsibilities wisdom as they navigate difficult decisions balancing public health, the need to complete fixtures and the financial wellbeing of Clubs.
We pray for our Glentoran family and surrounding East Belfast community, remembering especially: those who are ill, self isolating, anxious or isolated; those who suffer from underlying health conditions,
health care workers, those providing essential services, and those who are experiencing business difficulties or loss of work.
Hear our prayers in these difficult days.
