Interfaith Day of Prayer

May 7, 2020




Spirit of Life, Source of All, hear our prayer:


In this time of global pandemic, when fear and suffering are so much with us, keep our hearts open to love and guided by compassion. Steel our hearts against the urge to withdraw and pull away from the care and welcome of all neighbors.


Help us to reject the temptation of false voices calling for a return to normal, knowing that what was normal marked too many lives and whole communities as expendable. Give us strength and courage to call forth, to organize, to pull together and demand a new way of being rooted in compassion and interdependence that nurtures a future where all life and our planet may thrive.


In this holy time, when we are physically distant and yet our our interconnectedness is undeniable, help us to feel the great web that holds all of us. May we lean more fully into its beauty, its truth and the power of it to guide our way forward in love and justice.
