Prayer for a Pandemic
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 or 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 not 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 nor margin at all.
May we who settle in for a quarantine at home,
Remember those who have no home.
As fear grips our country,
Let us choose love.
During this time when we cannot physically wrap our arms around each other,
Let us yet find ways to be the loving embrace of God to our neighbours.
