A Collect is an ancient form of short prayer which addresses an aspect of God and makes a plea. ‘Collects’ gather up the needs of the day and state them in a brief form. Over the last few weeks, Julie Perrin shared a series of collects she wrote while reflecting on life during COVID-19. Accompanying these prayers, are beautiful photographs by Ian Ferguson.

Fierce Lover of life, give strength to our arms and our resolve. Critical is this time for cleaning, swabbing, scrubbing and washing our hands again. And again, and again. Let us join ourselves to the task with readiness, steadiness, clarity. Because we, too, love life, our own and our neighbour’s.
