Prayer from Canada
My prayers are for those who are hurting and scared, those who rely on services that are having to close, and those who will find themselves quickly in need.
My prayers are also for you, those who minister in the midst of this crisis – that you will remain healthy, that you will care for yourself, even as you care for those with whom you have been called to minister. We pray for the healing and mending of the world.
May we find tangible ways of supporting each other – and all of God’s world - in this time, and in the days to come, and may we know that, no matter what, as we “love and serve others,” as we “seek justice and resist evil,” as we “proclaim Jesus,” with our words and our actions, we will find a way through this, together.
God is with all creation.
We are not alone.
