Morning Prayer

Almighty God, you bless us with the joy of family.  We commend our families to your care.  Help us remember to keep our homes safe and clean for our families.  Help us to be Christ to each other during the days of frustration, fear and uncertainty.  Grant that those who live alone may not be lonely in their solitude, but may find fulf8illment in loving you and their neighbors.  May we all follow in the footsteps of our Lord Jesus Christ, in whose name we pray.  Amen

Morning Prayer

O Lord God, look with mercy on all who feel devastated and lonely in the isolation that is protecting them from the coronavirus.  Provide them with the peace and love that your presence brings, and give them understanding caregivers if they are ill.  Strengthen us all in faith and love in the face of this disease pandemic so that we can be supportive of each other through notes, cards, emails, phone calls and other distance communications.  Through Jesus Christ, our Lord we pray.  Amen
