A Prayer for Sunday 1st November 2020

God of all, God of now, hear our prayer.

There is so much uncertainty in the air.

We are unclear, confused, with worries for the near future and fears for what lies ahead.

Still us and calm our troubled souls.

In this time of raging waters, be our anchor.

In this time of fearsome winds, be our robust shelter.

In this time of ever-changing leadership, be our one true guide.

Still us and calm our troubled souls.

As we mourn those who we have lost, to Covid and over the years,

May we know your presence alongside us.

As we mourn the lives we had planned to live, now also lost to us,

May we know your presence alongside us.

As we mourn the utter, tragic waste and needlessness of it all,

May we know your presence alongside us.

Still us and calm our troubled souls.

Amen.

Peace be with you.

I am a Music Therapist, Worship Leader and Theologian with The Ordinary Office, an online community for disabled and disenfranchised Christians. As a writer, seeker and learner, I have a special interest in music and spirituality, and I believe that Jesus' message of love for one another supersedes religious rules and doctrines that harm. Focusing on inclusive and liberation theologies, through a lens of disability and trauma-informed approaches, I take my lived experiences and transform pain into action, living out God's call upon my life as a 'Twitter Mystic' and 'Prophetic Voice' - although I just get on with calling things as I see them without the fancy labels, really. I hope you find something here which interests and challenges you. Feel free to contact me for discussion any time!
