A Prayer for a World in Pandemic

A Prayer for a World in Pandemic


Loving and caring God,

we have done everything we’ve been told:

worn masks, stayed home, gotten our shots –

isn’t about time all this is over?


Let us remember always that no, it’s not over;

its not over for people in so many places we never think about:

people whose lives were already a struggle,

now overflowing with illness and loss and grief,

and often no masks, no shots, no way to stay safe at home.


Remind us, God of the whole world,

that the whole word is our family,

that this won’t be all over until it is over for all.

And let us do all we can

to give our whole-world family what we take for granted:

Hope for the future. Amen.                                            - The United Church of Canada, 2021
