April 1, 2020 - Prayer Tip

A prayer for these times by

Nadia Bolz-Weber:


For the layers of comfort and convenience that surrounded our lives and that we never considered a blessing but always just took for granted, forgive us.


For we who must grieve in isolation and not in community, comfort us.


For we who care for the sick, protect us.


For the ability to turn off the fear-mongering and unhelpful commentary and worst-case scenario click bait, strengthen us.


For the times when we are all out of creative ideas for how to get through this with cooped up kids, inspire us.


For we who are now cutting our own bangs at home, guide us.


For the grace to allow ourselves and others to just be less productive, shower us.


For the generosity needed from those of us who have more resources, empower us.


From our own selfish inclinations, deliver us.


For just being your children, none of whom have done a global pandemic before, love us.


For the days ahead, accompany us.


God unbound by time, help us to know that you are already present in the future we are fearing.


AMEN.
