14th April – A Prayer for Today

I don’t know how it all works
this Skype, Facetime and WhatsApp
but it does –
we can read a bedtime story to grandchildren far away
and from 12,000 miles distance they can see our clear blue sky.

I don’t know how it works
this forgiveness, deliverance and death-defying love
but it does –
you can sense it amongst separate but gathered people
when forgiveness is lived-out
burdens set down
and love reflected

Lord, I don’t know how it will work
but it will!
Help us to live in hope
to seek the good
and live out Easter joy
every day.
