God of hope, the reality of the many losses that people are experiencing during this coronavirus crisis somehow stifles the words of comfort I seek to give. All language seems inadequate, and I am left with only the stillness and silence that we share. I look to you O God, in this stillness for the guidance of your Spirit. We wait patiently for you to save and bring comfort and healing to all who are ill and to the hearts and lives that are broken. We wait in trust for divine relief, for your Word tells us that “All who wait upon the Lord will be rewarded.” Help me this day to be a blessing and a comfort to others. In Jesus blessed name we pray. Amen.
