Timeless God, when our days speed fleetingly past, you remember us. We pause now in the midst of our busy lives to acknowledge you as the One who gave us this day and every day. May we use it to worship you and serve others, filling our lives and this world with your love. Amen.
Prayer for Wisdom
We thank you, God of all life and each life, that you are with us every day, in each challenge and opportunity. In our weakness, you are strength. In our darkness, you are light on the journey.
In our questions, you are wisdom for our choices. Stay with us in these days when so much seems uncertain, and help us to serve you faithfully, when and as we are able.
God of loving kindness:
we give you thanks for moments of joy and celebration in our lives
even amidst the ongoing pandemic,
for love given and received,
for friendships which bring us meaning and happiness, even at a distance,
and for family members who show us glimpses of unconditional love.
In all our relationships and interactions,
keep us mindful of your call to see you in one another.
God of healing: we pray for those who are suffering in these difficult days of pandemic, for those who mourn the loss of someone or something dear.
Draw close to all who fear the future.
Surround each one with your love
and show us how to bring comfort and support into situations of hurt and pain.
And now we pray in the words that Jesus taught us, saying:
The Lord’s Prayer
