To begin say- In life, in death, in life beyond death, God is with us. We are not alone.
Then pray – God of all time and place, we thank you for the gifts of life, love, compassion, and challenge. Help us to know that each small individual action together with another’s can make a difference to the world and make a world of difference. May your kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven. Amen.

Pray – Loving God, Your desire is for our wholeness and well being. We hold in tenderness and prayer the collective suffering of our world at this time. We grieve precious lives lost and vulnerable lives threatened. We ache for ourselves and our neighbors, standing before an uncertain future. We pray: may love, not fear, go viral. Inspire our leaders to discern and choose wisely, aligned with the common good. Help us to practice social distancing and reveal to us new and creative ways to come together in spirit and in solidarity. Call us to profound trust in your faithful presence, You, the God who does not abandon. Amen.
