Lord our Heavenly Father,
May we who are merely inconvenienced, remember those whose lives are at stake.
May we who have no risk factors, remember those who are most vulnerable.
May we who have the luxury of working from home, remember those who must choose from preserving their health or paying their rent.
May we who have the flexibility to care for our children when their schools close, remember those who do not have options.
May we who have to cancel our trips, remember those who have 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 a quarantine at home, remember those who have no home.
As fear grips the country, let us choose love.
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 neighbour.
In Jesus’ name we pray.
