  • Prayer for One Another

    Prayer during a Pandemic
    (author unknown)

    May we, who are merely inconvenienced, remember those whose lives are at stake.

    May we, who have no risk factors, remember those most vulnerable.

    May we, who have the luxury of working from home, remember those who must choose between preserving their health or making their rent.

    May we, who have the flexibility to care for our children when their schools close, remember those who have no options.
    May we, who have to cancel our trips, remember those who have no safe place to go.

    May we, who are losing our margin money in the tumult of the economic market, remember those who have no margin at all.
    May we, who settle in for a quarantine at home, remember those who have no home at all. 

    As fear grips our country, may we instead choose faith, hope, and love. 

    During this time when we cannot physically wrap our arms around each other, help us find ways to be the loving embrace of God to our neighbors. Amen
