Friends, today’s Monday Prayer is brought to you by mood swings!
In the past few days my mood has swung back and forth.
From excitement and energy to total lethargy and deep melancholy it feels like I have gone through a dictionary of emotions…
Thus, my prayer today comes from this evening’s mood (it is nearly 6 pm in Scotland)
thank you for today’s sunshine
thank you for an opportunity to tramp through a muddy field with my dogs and my beloved
thank you for the love of friends
thank you – that even though I am not able to visit and socialise
there is still friendship and love all around.
God of all things, and all places.
Your people are hurting:
Isolation and frustration
Fear and anxiety.
Mourning and Weeping.
Help us to name our fears
Help us to hold it all lightly
Show us the glimpses of light in the darkness.
We pray, we cry out, we join together – in video chats and zoom hang outs
Guide and lead those who are working to care for those who are unwell
comfort those who are distraught
Strengthen the doctors who feel helpless in the face of a virus with no treatment
hear the prayers of your people
the cries of your creation
the groans of your world

She found this article about why her Brain was’t Working as Well – really helpful!
