​O God,
Where hearts are fearful and constricted, grant courage and hope.
Where anxiety is infectious, grant peace and reassurance.
Where impossibilities close every door and window, grant imagination and resistance.
Where distrust twists our thinking and grants healing and illumination.
Where spirits are daunted and weak, grant soaring wings and strengthened dreams.
We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.
