Almighty and Everlasting God,
There nothing you have not seen or considered.
All human existence has been witnessed by you,
But today I find myself in a new place in scary times.
I am trying not to fear this uncharted territory.
I wrestle with productivity and still doing all the things I expect myself to do,
Yet I also see the need to rest and recuperate.
Guide me as I navigate this new region of ambiguity.
May your wisdom guide my actions and inspire my choices.
Teach me the ways of Christ, my Lord, who knew when to rest and when to act.
I cannot do anything apart from you,
And I know that I need you in order to become the disciple I desire so deeply to be.
When I feel anxiety rise, let your Spirit fall over me.
Surround me with your comfort, so that I can focus on you and your will.
Help me rest when my mind is overworked and my body is pushed to the limits of stress.
Grant me the peace I need to be healthy and whole.
May my choices align with your will, so that all your people may find healing,
Being safe guarded from this illness that threatens to overwhelm us.
I commend to you all those who are working on the front lines of protection,
Keeping our communities safe with their selfless sacrifice.
Guide and guard them, Lord.
Lead us to a time and place when we can rejoice together again.
For now, all our trust is in you, the Rock upon which we stand.
All honor and glory to you, now and forever.
