A  prayer  for  connection 

Dear God,

Being alone is hard.
We were created for community, not for confinement.

But we’re grateful that, no matter how alone we may feel,
You never leave or forsake us. 

And we’re grateful for technology
that helps us stay in touch with each other.


Today, please remind us that this time
of social distancing and isolation will not last forever.


Give us strength to endure this difficult time
and deepen our connection with You and Your people.

Empower us with an extra dose of Your love, peace, hope and joy,
because we need it.
Remind us of Your promises and please heal our land.


In Jesus’ Name.
Amen.
