Prayer for These Times

Holy One, the days of the virus linger on.

For God alone my soul waits in silence.

The news updates roll in like wave after wave,

bringing more stories, more pain, more fear.

For God alone my soul waits in silence.

The ache of separateness from loved ones

is sometimes hard to bear.

For God alone my soul waits in silence.

Cloistered in quietude, may deep speak to deep.

May I make my home within my heart where you meet me.

For God alone my soul waits in silence.

Expand my soul space, deepen my awareness of you

Help me to be still, that you may do an enlivening and healing work in me.

For God alone my soul waits in silence.

That I may emerge from this secluded space deeper, stronger, more whole.

For God alone my soul waits in silence.

My soul waits in you.

Amen.

by Rev. Eva Sullivan-Knoff, Spiritual Director & Executive Director of Journey Center of Chicago
