Prayer for a Pandemic, Cameron Bellm

by Mar 19, 2020Blog, Prayer, Spiritual Resources8 comments

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 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 that 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,

let us choose love.

During this time when we cannot physically wrap our arms around each other,

Let us yet find ways to be the loving embrace of God to our neighbors. Amen.

    Thank you so much for this beautiful prayer. With your blessing, I would like to use parts of this in my worship service this Sunday (giving credit of course). Stay safe, be well, be calm, be faithful.

    Thank you for sharing this prayer. I have added it to my morning prayer and shared it with a couple of friends. It is a wonderful reminder of where we are at during this time.

    Thank you for a prayer to wake us up to how lucky we are, us who are confined but still healthy, knowing that people are battling on our behalf to save others and try to eliminate the virus.
    In addition we pray for the mourning thousands that they may find peace and strength.

      We join in prayer, Anne!
