Prayers and Reflections

Prayer for Protection.

God of Love and Mercy
We pray for our world  for all of us,                                                                                                                       each one now in some way impacted by COVID-19:                                                                                                  but especially for those persons who are ill,                                                                                                       those who have lost loved ones                                                                                                                                 and those whose personal and work lives                                                                                                           have been severely disrupted by the reach of this virus.

We give thanks for the tender care of the sick                                                                                                         by doctors, nurses and health care workers,                                                                                                         for the generous and willing service of volunteers                                                                                               and for the imagination and dedication of researchers seeking a cure.

We are grateful for those who share wise advice with us;                                                                                         those whose work creates healthy environments for us;                                                                                            those who put our needs before theirs,                                                                                                                  our safety before theirs,                                                                                                                                              our well-being before theirs.

May we each be supportive of one another,                                                                                                                considerate of one another                                                                                                                                    and generous to one another in this difficult and uncertain time.

-Amen
