Prayer for a pandemic
May we who have concern for ourselves and for others, remember all whose lives are at stake.
May we who have minimum risk factors, remember those who are most vulnerable.
May we who have the security of having a home, remember those who worry about making their rent.
May we who are able to arrange care for our children when schools are closed, remember those who have no options.
May we who have to cancel our trips, remember those who have no place to go.
May we who are able to maintain our financial way of life, remember those who live from day to day.
May we who settle in for a quarantine at home, remember those who have no home.
During this time when we cannot physically wrap our arms around each other,
Let us find ways to be the loving embrace of God to our family, friends, neighbors, co-workers...
