MUC Prayer Offering #5

MUC Prayer Offering #5

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change
Guide me to choose common sense and reason over anger, fear, racism
Open my ears to the daily wisdom of the global medical world
May I receive this with calm, gratitude and a sense of community
Help me to dismiss the media hype while staying very aware
Thank you for your peace and grace to us all

God grant me the courage to change the things I can
Guide me to listen to and comply with uncomfortable restrictions
Open my mind and heart to the needs of others at this time
May I be led to new ways of connecting and living, of being neighbour
Help me to share peace, love, a wave, a smile, a meal, a call,
Thank you for your peace and grace to us all

God grant me the wisdom to know the difference
Guide me to advocate for the common good, not selfish needs
Open my soul to the benefits of time to focus on family or being with self
May I enjoy more simple things, the forgotten book, recipes, games, meditation
Help me to be creative, caring, connecting, resilient, relying on your love
Thank you for your grace and peace to us all. Amen.
