Prayer for 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 of working from home
Remember those who must choose between
Preserving their health or paying the rent.
May we who have the flexibility to care for our children when their schools are closed
Remember those who have no options.
May we who have to cancel 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 settle in for a quarantine at home as we
Remember those who have no home.
As Fear grips our nation, let us choose love.
During this time when we cannot physically wrap our arms around each other,
Let us seek ways to be the loving embrace of God to our neighbors and community.
