A prayer for a global pandemic
‘Love…bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends.’
(1 Corinthians 13:7-8)
Loving God, streng then our innermost being with your love that bears all thing seven the weight of this global pandemic even the long haul of watching for symptoms of patiently waiting for this to pass watching and waiting, keeping our gaze fixed on you, and looking out for our neighbours near and far.Instil in our shaken souls the belief and hope that all things are possible with your creative love for strangers to become friends for science to source solutions for resources to be generously shared so everyone, everywhere, may have what they need for your perfect love that knows no borders may cast out any fear and selfishness that divides. May your love that never ends be our comfort, strength and guide for the wellbeing of all and the glory of God.
