Here’s a Prayer
for those with Covid.
Because, you know God
so far my family has a light case.
But it’s scary–
scary that it might get worse;
scary how easy it is to ignore the warnings and go on with our lives.
Here’s a prayer for those in isolation–
because they have covid,
or are avoiding it, still
after all this time.
Lonely, and alone.
Here’s a prayer for the sick,
the ones who are caretaking
the long haul covid people
wrestling with something we still do not understand
Here’s a prayer for the world-weary
those who feel like they are screaming into the abyss
Who are tired of playing Sorry,
hearing sorry, when covid is bumped into again,
and oop back to start again.
Jesus how do you deal in humanity?
Our pride, our ignorance?
Worst of all our frailty,
which someone you know but we are able to boisterously ignore?
Here’s a prayer for us humans,
silly, confused, and still beloved.
May we still walk the road to Emmaus together,
especially when we are confused or tired, or frail we pray.
