God of all silence and noise,
In our quiet sanctuaries, where a myriad of sounds have been absent for nearly a year, may the silence hold the stories of our faith communities until our return. May the Spirit of stillness pray for the ones who are lonely and the ones who are sick. May your healing love build them up.
May hope keep us warm in our hibernation as we dream of days together again. May we vision the songs that will be sung and the hugs given.
May we welcome patience as our companion as we see the light at the far end of this long road.
