20th May – A Prayer for Today

Today we hold in mind all those
who on this warm day must wrap themselves
in plastic PPE.
Those who tend to the sick
in hospitals and care homes;
those who diagnose and prescribe;
those who dispense
medicine and kindness;
those who deep clean,
fetch and carry.
May all who step up
rather than step away
be wrapped, too, in your love.
