18th March – A Prayer for Today

We don’t miss the vaper trails that, on a clear day,
appear to scar the sky
but we miss, so much, friends and family far away.

We find ourselves living with a strange anomaly:
in a world of increasing separation
we share a common fear
and must overcome together.

Lord,
grant to those with power and influence
the wisdom to do what is right
and what is best
for all humanity.
