A call to prayer

March 20, 2020 · Print This Article

Prayer is about care.

In response to the Coronavirus outbreak, many religious groups, including Christianity, Judaism and Islam, have called for a time of prayer.

Prayer is not so much about imploring God to do something as it is about joining in God’s love for those close to us and for the rest of humanity.

When we pray for someone, we make a positive statement. It’s saying that we participate in God’s love for him or her. When we help someone, we put God’s gifts of love and compassion into action.

A simple prayer could be: “God, I’m new to all this prayer stuff, but help me please to pray for those caught up in the coronavirus pandemic. In particular help me to share in your love for (name some names). Thank you”.

Time to pray.
