A scavenger delivers food to a man twice a day in the wilderness.
In the middle of a famine, a jar of flour never decreases no matter how often used.
A stranger heals a widow’s son with only a prayer.
Our need to be physically separate feels unnatural.
But we love our neighbors.
We are weary of all the struggles the world provides us and fear we will be overcome.
But we keep going one step at a time.
Angst, fear, worries, illness, injury, isolation, war, poverty and so much more overwhelm us.
So we pray. We enter communion with our God whose love remains with us always.
[moment of silence]
Close in Lord’s Prayer
who art in heaven,
hallowed be your Name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For yours is the kingdom
and the power, and the glory,
forever and ever. Amen.
