1 Corinthians 3:8

A prayer for this current period of school closure
The doors of the house where the disciples had met were locked. (John 20.19)
Ever present God,
be with us in our isolation,
be close to us in our distancing,
be healing in our sickness,
be joy in our sadness,
be light in our darkness,
be wisdom in our confusion,
be all that is familiar when all is unfamiliar,
that when our doors reopen
we may with the peace and hope of the Holy Spirit
return back into our school community
and speak of your goodness and faithfulness
to an emerging world.
For Jesus’ sake.
