Prayer for Closeness with God in the Time of Social Distancing
Inspired by Jeremiah 23:23-24
God, you are the maker of heaven and earth.
You created each and every one of us.
There is nothing that you do not see.
There is not a thought or feeling that we have that we can hide from you.
You know all of our fears and all of our hopes.
In light of this global pandemic, you are deeply acquainted with every plan that has been cancelled, every hope that has been deferred, every tear that has been shed, and every single life lost.
Even though we are experiencing isolation, you are not distant from us.
You are here.
God, the problems of the coronavirus are pervasive, affecting nearly every aspect of our daily lives.
We sometimes give over to worry and fear.
God, we ask you to continue to protect us.
We specifically ask you to protect those who are most vulnerable among us—the elderly and the immunocompromised.
