7th April – A Prayer for Today

On Sunday we thought we ought to celebrate.
Following weeks of quarantine and self-isolation
the family are back together.
It was a moment to push out the boat,
go large
big it up
and so …
we opened a tin of tomatoes.

Lord,
in our great big world
where we are entrusted with seemingly small things
help us to follow-through
with the phone calls,
the warm, but distanced, greetings
and sensible shopping.
Help us to sustain one another;
to take just enough;
to share hope, postage stamp sized joys
and always, always love.
