Lockdown – A Poem of  Hope

Yes there is fear.
Yes there is isolation.
Yes there is panic buying.
Yes there is sickness.
Yes there is even death.
They say that in Wuhan after so many years of noise you can hear the birds again. Read the entire poem . . .

    Prayer for People Critically Ill or Facing Great Uncertainty
    God of the present moment,
    God who in Jesus stills the storm
    and soothes the frantic heart;
    bring hope and courage to all
    who wait or work in uncertainty.
    Bring hope that you will make them the equal of whatever lies ahead.
    Bring them courage to endure what cannot be avoided,
    for your will is health and wholeness;
    you are God, and we need you.
    – Adapted from New Zealand Prayer Book, p. 765
