A Quarantine Prayer

Here is the prayer that Elizabeth & Nathan share during today’s video gather. I thought it was pretty awesome and therefore wanted to share it again.

May we who know justice & compassion,
Repent for those who have let the viruses of greed make a difficult situation worse.

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 have to choose between preserving their health and making their rent.

May we who have the flexibility to care for our children when their schools close,
Remember those who have no 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 no margin at all.

May we who settle in for a quarantine at home,
Remember those who have no home.

As fear grips our country help us choose love.

During this time when we cannon physically loop our arms around each other,
Help us find ways to be the loving embrace of God to our neighbors.

Amen
