Divine One

You see us, you hear us

I come to you now with pain in my heart

So many of our leaders are failing us

Please, Divine One, help them make good decisions

With the health of all people in mind

Divine One, there are so many unknowns

We have never been in a situation like this

Please, grant us your gifts of wisdom and faith

Help our leaders now, and help us too

Grant us courage to speak out when we should

And serenity to accept that which cannot be changed

Divine One, guide us now

Still the fear and panicking

Grant us your calm

Let hope rise, amid all turmoil

Help us remember

You are near

You are always near

Help us turn to you

With open hearts and outstretched hands

Grant us humility

Speak your words of peace into our hearts

And help us reflect your peace into the world
