As our world undergoes a global pandemic,
Show us where our focus should be, amidst our siblings who feel powerless, invisible and unloved.
As divisions of race, gender and politics tear through society,
Teach us to cherish our differences with humility.
And when it is time to rebuild,
Guide us, direct our energies and resources to the frailties in our ministries, that have been revealed under difficult times
Empower us, give us the courage and vision of Pentecost,
to be a church that fights for change, a community where the least of us, is at the heart of our mission.
Let us not be lulled into complacency and comfort.
But let justice run down like water,
And righteousness like a mighty stream
