Loving God, within this ongoing pandemic
give us the time that we need,
not only to do what we need to do,
but to become the person
you need us to be.
Give us the space that we need,
to rest and relax, to be refreshed and renewed,
so that we appreciate again –
the beauty of the world around us
and the wonder of your love within us.
Then by your Spirit give us opportunities to share
what we have received, with others in need,
whatever restrictions still surround us.
So that together we may know,
the joy and peace that Christ alone can bring.
