Today as we continue to pray our breath prayers we also pray with lament and hope.
Together we raise our song with resolve: “I will hold the Christ-light for you in the night time of your fear.”
Consider lighting a candle each day for a specific person or situation.
Where is hope needed most? For yourself? For your family? For our world?
“It feels like things are not ok
And this ‘thing’ will never go away
Life all around is caving in
And no-one knows where to begin
‘What-ifs’ and fears are on the rise
And nobody’s able to disguise
The sadness of this sudden change
To life, a routine; it’s strange
But sit a moment with that thought
Forget the things that you’ve been taught
For awhile there’s no rat race
A slower life put in its place
We suddenly have the space to stop
The cusp of spring still breaks its sleep
Our birds return to trill and cheep
And hope and kindness start to bloom”
As we practice necessary social distancing, may our prayers draw us near to God as God draws near to us with hope and love.
holding the Christ-light for you,
