Dear God,
It is climate anxiety,
it is compassion fatigue,
it is rage about white supremacists,
it is bewilderment about conspiracy-believers,
it is apprehension about virus variants,
it is agitation about the changes that are needed,
it is a stomach in knots,
it is fretful sleep,
it is all the feelings.

So many feelings.

This prayer,
my prayer,
is all the so many feelings.

In the largeness of your love,
receive this prayer,
and continue to be at work,
for us and with us.
Amen.
