Some of us are lying wounded with varying degrees of injuries, the mental kind of injuries that take so long to heal. It’s hard to work when our minds don’t work as well as they used to. Help us find solace from our teaching injuries in you.
Let your will be done in this and all things. If you are going to rock us with COVID, rock us with COVID. Let us remember that you love us more than we could ever hope to love you and so to accept whatever COVID brings.
Help us remember to trust in you. Just trust in you and things will be all right? OK – we’ll do it! We have no other choice. Thanks for the reminder. We’ll just do that. We know that we can totally count on your divine grace to get us out of this, and you will, but not on our terms. On your terms. Your terms are, in the long, always the best for us.
And if there is no big solution here in response to our prayers, we know nevertheless that you will get us out of this somehow, sometime, how and when you wish. It’s a good feeling to know that. We always need a reminder that you’ve got everything under control, and this COVID thing is waking up a lot of people. You are clever beyond anything we can imagine.
