A 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 of 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 children who will go hungry with no school meals.

May we who have to cancel our trips

remember those with no 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 who settle in for 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 neighbour.

Through Jesus Christ, whose arms of love embrace us all.

Amen.
