A Prayer For These Uncertain Times

By The Rev. Dr. Ellen Clark-King

Tuesday, March 17

As people across the Bay Area, across the United States and around the world enter into a time of sheltering-in-place, quarantine, and increased social isolation, the Rev. Canon Dr. Ellen Clark-King wrote this prayer to guide us in these uncertain times:

Holy God,
who created us for and from love,
in this time of social distancing,
hold us close in your arms.
Comfort those who are afraid,
enliven those who are bored,
give courage to those who are distressed,
and warm those who feel the cold touch of loneliness.
Breathe in, with and through us
as we walk through uncertainty into a new future
knowing that you are with us now and await us there.
In the name of Christ the Beloved we pray.
Amen.

By the Rev. Canon Dr. Ellen Clark-King, Vice Dean and Canon for Social Justice at Grace Cathedral
