A Petition and Prayer
Gracious God, we petition you from a world in dire need of your grace and peace.
Our children need our continuing protection amidst the death-dealing conditions of a coronavirus pandemic and racial discrimination.
We cry out in lament for the impacts of this uncertain time on our children—rhythms of school and play are disrupted; customs and rituals are curtailed and circumscribed; familiar routines have dropped into uncertainty.
And we adults are no less affected! Help us build a web of safety and security.
Redouble our caring commitment, stimulate our discernment. Enable us to weave in new fibers where extra measures of safety and support are needed. May your will be done in all we endeavor to do.
