Prayer for a Pandemic

Prayer for a Pandemic


May we who are 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 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 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 find ways to be the loving embrace

of God to our neighbours.
