God of all that is-

Can we take baby steps into our world yet? Can we enter spaces where all of your other children work and play?

Could you help me discern God? Could you help all of our churches and businesses and all who participate in society know what steps to take to help us coexist with COVID-19?

I’m sometimes at a loss of how far I can enter this world safely. Would you give me some insight?

I’m exhausted trying to keep rules and make rules in this surreal realm.

Assist me in designing worship and faith experiences that are safe. Allow me to navigate this new world safely. Create in me a peaceful heart, loving Creator.
